Resene Construction held their first apprentice of the year competition as part of their annual conference.
The conference was very informative, giving hands-on, practical advice of how to use a variety of different materials and techniques.
The three finalists for the apprentice of the year were Zane Doyle, Jacob Birchal and Shaun Frame. They competed in a practical competition and had some very interesting tasks to complete in front of around 100 other exterior plasterers. It can’t have been easy on their nerves competing in front of so many qualified, experienced tradespeople.
Shaun Frame from Coastline Plastering was the overall winner and was presented with his award at the conference awards dinner.
A number of awards were presented including Resene Construction Systems 2015 Awards for 'National & Southern Region' Plasterers of the year 2015 which went to Greg Proudfoot Plastering Ltd.
Congratulations to all the winners on the night.
