Sophie Millard – WesTrac apprentice
What are you most looking forward to?
I’m excited to learn more about underground mining operations and get the opportunity to do some field service work.
What has been the best part of the program so far?
Every day I’m given a job that’s new to me, no day is the same. I learn something new all the time and I love getting to work out how to fix/fabricate something different.
What are the best perks about being a WesTrac apprentice?
The biggest perk is wearing the uniform. It’s a privilege to learn my trade from such a respected company. I’ve always felt like an individual, not a number.
