And last but not least, by offering these Traineeships we are helping supply the industry with well trained and qualified workers.
Langs Building Supplies currently employ about 8 trainees in various Traineeships.
Adam Leahy, see picture on right, is an example of our successful Traineeship program. Adam started as a trainee detailer/estimator in 2006 and completed his training in 2008.
"After completing school in 2005 I began my professional career, as a trainee detailer/estimator, with Langs Building Supplies because they are an industry leading company.
The Traineeship gave me the opportunity to achieve nationally recognized certificates during my first 3 years of full time employment - Certificate II and III in Timber Manufacturing and Merchandising. Since then I have used these skills, and the assistance of Langs specialized staff, to further my knowledge within the building industry.
Choosing this Traineeship with Langs Building Supplies has given me stable and promising future career prospects."
