Wind Turbine Apprenticeship in UK

One of the most leading renewable energy organizations “Orsted” congratulates the first apprentice to finish a “Maintenance and Operations Engineering Technician program”. David Davidson is now a fully competent wind turbine technician who works at Racebank offshore wind farm.

During the first intake of Ørsted in 2017, he started his training with them. Working at the side of education providers, Grimsby Institute of Higher Education is also following the pathway of the wind turbine.

From 2017 the technician of the MOET gets recruitment for its initial apprenticeship scheme in the UK. Now, this program is well known among technicians. Further, across sites in Grimsby and Barrow, the firm has seen a total number of 33 apprentices who join the company.

As David gets a reward for his distinction in the final assessment, he expresses his experience showing his gratitude. He says that by completing his apprenticeship at Ørsted, he can grow with his potential career path.

Further, he adds that he could not be more grateful for all opportunities that were given to me. If anyone wishes to join this expanding industry, then he would definitely recommend this program to them. The Energy & Utilities Independent Assessment Service conducts the assessment for the final apprenticeship in the West Midlands.

The Head of the EUIAS, Bernie Zakary, says they are happy to appoint as the end-point assessment organization for wind turbine technician apprentice. The assessment that we offer features several challenges.

The apprentice was in the North Sea at a height of120m tall wind power turbine, and the assessor was onshore. All of the assessments that we offer consist of some utmost standard, and this was no exception. We are grateful and give best wishes to David. Moreover, they are also looking forward to carrying out lots of more assessments in the near future.

Now once again, Ørsted is opening up applications for their next session of apprentices. The minimum age limit for applicants is 16 years, and no maximum age limit to apply for apprentices at MOET.
