Cousins Electrics Provides Career Start for Emilio (Year 12)



Emilio Porter graduated Year 12 this year while completing a Certificate II in Electrotechnology through the Bunbury Regional Trade Training Centre.


Throughout Years 11 and 12 at Our Lady of Mercy College, VET/Careers staff assisted Emilio in facilitating work placements with various local employers, including Australind Mobile Mechanic, Nixon Electrics and BGC Construction. Each of these placements provided Emilio with valuable real-world experience and allowed him to develop the necessary employability skills which aided his efforts to secure a full-time Apprenticeship under Steve Hastie at Cousins Electrics.


Congratulations on your new appointment, Emilio. We have been blessed to journey with you and pleased to see your efforts rewarded. We would also like to sincerely thank Steve at Cousins Electrics, Bunbury for his commitment to mentor Emilio at the start of his career.
