Our Telekom Apprentice Off For Training

Three Solomon Telekom Graduate/Apprentice students left the country on Saturday 8th March 2008 to undertake training specific to Telecommunications.

Joseph Maneipuri, Samson Wehi and Nathan Waleiole Jnr are sponsored by Our Telekom to undergo 6 months training in Telecommunications at the Telikom Training College (TTC), in Lae, Papua New Guinea. The students are expected to graduate soon and return with City & Guilds Certificate in Telecommunications.

Our Telekom Manager Human Resources and Administration, Mr. Christian Nieng commented that it is important that the company employs qualified employees at a time when the labour market lacks skills specific to Telecommunications.

"We are happy that we are able to send the three candidates under 2008 Graduate/Apprentice programme to study at the Telikom Training College in Lae, PNG," Nieng said.

Our Telekom is committed each year to recruit graduates and apprentices under its current Gradate/Apprenticeship programme.
