    1. Good day.
      To whom it may concern:
      My name is Zubair Moos from Mitchell’s plain.
      I started my electrical journey with great aspirations, as an electrical assistant at Nolitha construction as well as a part-time electrical trade student at Northlink College, in 2019. Until I was relieved from my position due to an unfortunate accident with a drunk driver that sped through a red light, and sent me to the hospital for a head operation but I am 100% recovered.
      After my recovery I went to study full time to complete my n3 trade. Once I was fit for work again the next year, mercy from the lord allowed me to get a job at Robertson& Caine doing electrical work on luxurious yachts until the pandemic caused me to get retrenched. Currently, I’m doing my own private work and would like to complete my phases and prep myself for the trade test, but the phases are too costly and I’m still trying to get funding.

      I am one of the most hardworking and dedicated individuals. I’ve got about 3 years experience in the electrical industry with multiple skills in different fields. I am confident and eager to specialize and make a change in the electrical industry, despite my obstacles, pride is my drive for success. I’d really appreciate some feedback on how to apply for your apprenticeship opportunity.
