I did, and the closing date was nearly a month ago - surely decisions must be made soon to get interviews started and have the intake before end of year?

From reading about last years apprenticeships 1400 sat aptitude tests and less than 100 made the cut to be even considered for interview. Don't understand why they leave it so long to get in touch with people who they already know didn't score high enough in aptitude.

As I understand it, there are several different trades - electrician, fitter and mechanic. It's 3-4 years of blocks of classroom and workshop training.

The apprenticeships are in Drogheda, Dublin, Portlaoise or Limerick, which are the main locations for medium and heavy maintenance. Other locations do maintenance, but usually only the daily checks and the like.
