The ten successful candidates for the new Digicel & BTC apprenticeship program started this week, which marks the beginning of a three-year training scheme designed to train young Bermudians in the vital role of technical engineers.

“The aspiring telecoms professionals have been launched straight into their intensive training, beginning with company orientation, getting to know their new colleagues and core practical competencies such as cable splicing.

“Digicel & BTC anticipate the apprenticeship program will be repeated on an annual basis, providing further opportunity for young Bermudians to benefit from training and jobs, to keep a continuous stream of expertise into the business and support the ever growing needs of businesses and residents in Bermuda for connectivity they can count on.”

Robin Seale, CEO of Digicel and BTC, stated “The apprenticeship program we have launched is so important both for the future success of our business and as part of our clear commitment to invest in Bermuda that I was personally involved in the selection process.

“I was extremely impressed with the caliber of the applicants overall, it was very much a case of selecting the best of the best. I look forward to seeing the careers of those who joined us this week develop and perhaps they will be part of the selection panel next year!”
