Good luck to our 2018 HRN apprentices
Good luck to our two new apprentices, Craig Abel from our Insch depot and Owen Friend from Kinloss, as they continue their career paths with HRN Tractors by starting the John Deere Ag Tech program, working closely with ProVQ.
Attending the John Deere apprenticeship programme in combination with internal and in-field training has proven invaluable to HRN in recent years, allowing HRN to continue to provide a quality service to our customers.
The apprenticeship training program includes:
Eight weeks training each year for three years at the John Deere Apprentice Training Centre, Nottinghamshire;
IMI Level 2 Diploma, progressing to Level 3;
Functional Skills Levels 1 & 2 in Maths and English;
End Point Assessment;
Landbased Training Accreditation Intermediate Level.
On completion, all our technicians continue to carry out further manufactures training, keeping up to date with the constantly evolving products we supply and ahead of our competitors.
Having been one of the first within the HRN group to pass through the AgTech program, Gordy Kelly from Kinloss has become an integral part of the service department, and can be seen passing on his technical knowledge to Owen already.
Likewise Craig has been involved closely with repairs at Insch, and can be seen assisting Stevie Scott who graduated last year, and Martyn Burnett who is in his final completion year, having won the RNAS apprentice of the year this year.
