Call out for carpentry apprentices to enter challenge

Carpentry apprentices in Gisborne are being asked to enter the 2019 New Zealand Certified Builders Apprentice Challenge.

Last year Gisborne had so few entries the region was merged with Hawke‘s Bay.

This year the challenge organisers want to make sure Gisborne can hold its own regional challenge.

The competition will be held in 18 regions (including Gisborne) across the country on Saturday, April 6, and is open to apprentices employed by current NZCB builders or enrolled with Industry Training Association Building (ITAB).

Apprentices can enter by visiting https://apprenticechallenge.nz/how-to-get-involved and filling out the entry form. Entries must be received by 25 March.

Regional winners will progress to the national final in Christchurch this June, where they will compete for the Ken Read Memorial Trophy and $50,000 worth of prizes.
