Batchfire’s ongoing program of fleet upgrades provides an excellent opportunity to gain valuable experience working on new, highly advanced equipment.

Our dedicated, experienced site teams will ensure that these apprentices learn the skills that will make them sought after tradesmen in the future.

Members of Batchfire’s Management and Maintenance teams welcomed representatives from GAGAL, Apprentices & Trainees Queensland and the Apprenticeship Network Provider at the signing of the commencement documentation which completed a thorough recruitment process.

“It’s fantastic to experience Batchfire’s sharing and supportive attitude, especially in the area of safety,” said Michael Walz, CEO Apprentice & Trainees Queensland.

Glenda Vasey, Snr Field Officer, GAGAL and the BEST Centre in Biloela said that GAGAL has over 50 apprentices in the Banana Shire.

“It is fantastic to see Batchfire continue their 21- year partnership with us,” she said.
