Capricorn 2019 Rising Stars Apprentice of the Year Competition

Public news

If you have a standout apprentice and you are a Capricorn Member, nominate them now for a 2019 Rising Stars Apprentice of the Year award.

Recognising our up and coming Automotive Technicians is very important for our industry, with the winning apprentice, their workshop’s boss and two friends receiving an all-expenses paid trip to the Gold Coast 600 Supercars, along with 150,000 bonus Capricorn Reward Points from Castrol. The winner will also receive training with the Workshop’s Whisperer’s Leadership Academy.

If your apprentice isn’t chosen for the top prize, not to worry. The top five finalists win prizes as well!

The top five finalists will receive a $1000 tool kit and Autopedia subscription from Repco, two tickets to attend a Repco Masterclass Clinic, online training from AutoMate and tickets to the Capricorn Gala Dinner and Tradeshow.

Retaining Automotive Technician apprentices in South Australia remains a challenge for the industry and it is vital that those who are going above and beyond are recognised for their achievements.

Capricorn CEO Automotive and Rising Starts Judge, David Fraser said, “We’ve listened to our Members when they’ve told us that one of their biggest concerns for the future is the lack of qualified mechanics and technicians. As a co-operative that exists purely to make it easier for our Members to run and grow their business, Capricorn is very pleased to be running this top performing apprentice-based initiative.”
