LG Motion has always invested in trainees and apprentices in order to support the continued growth of the business in an increasingly complex technical automation environment and to maintain an influx of new young engineers in the industry who are enthusiastic and have potential to develop.

The newest apprentice

Ben Keifer, who is the latest apprentice to join the company, is taking up an Advanced Electro-Mechanical course which will include training in wiring, controls, programming, and the integration of components in more complex configurations. A lot of this training will also recognise the application of Industry 4.0 concepts. Upon the successful completion of the apprenticeship the company may offer the opportunity to continue further education though HNC/HND of degree should he wish to continue his personal development.
