Last week, CJK welcomed our brand-new electrical apprentices to our dedicated Training & Development Centre in Ballycoolin, Dublin, for their induction day.
The apprentices met with Brian Nolan, CJK’s Apprentice Liaison Officer, and were brought through a variety of activities aimed at enabling them to get to know each other and familiarize themselves with the electrical trade. It made for an impressive introduction to the world of CJK! In 2020, CJK launched its new Training & Development Centre, a dedicated centre of excellence for CJK’s apprentices, comprising of state-of-the-art fully equipped training rooms and workshop training facilities.

The development, training and mentoring apprentices receive with CJK is unparalleled in the marketplace. CJK recognises apprentice’s contribution for a job well done through our Apprentice of the Month Awards.
Apprentices enjoy a varied four years of training in a variety of different sectors.
