A&P apprentices to work on RFA vessel

Shiprepair eNews - June 2016AP Group apprentices in Falmouth

Nine apprentices from A&P Falmouth will soon put their training to work on the RFA Cardigan Bay. The vessel is expected to dock at A&P Falmouth in July ready to begin a five-month period of refit and maintenance work, after four years at sea.

A&P Group’s apprentices will be part of the 250 strong team of engineers, technicians and repairers working on the 16,000 dwt vessel, while it is in Falmouth’s drydock.

The apprentices are continuing a long tradition at the yard. Around 72 per cent of A&P Falmouth’s management, supervisors and technical staff started out on apprenticeship programmes and A&P Falmouth’s managing director, Gerald Pitts, began his career at A&P Group as an engineering apprentice 40 years ago.  RFA Cardigan Bay

A&P Group operates seven dry docks across three strategic locations in the UK and has a business in Australia that provides ship repair services and support to the Royal Australian Navy.
