Lewis Wilson

After completing his apprenticeship, Lewis is now an employee at Canal Engineering...

Qualification: Level 2 NVQ Diploma in Fabrication & Welding

Lewis came to CEATA through the government sponsorship scheme to better his skills and become an accredited welder.

Lewis found it hard to get any opportunities within the skilled fields of welding with his lack of previous skills.

Having found the course at CEATA, Lewis progressed over the 6 weeks to perform the correct welding techniques and learning the necessary information to bring him up to a good standard and earning his Diploma.

The most demanding aspect Lewis found about the course was the margin for error when physically welding.

To reach the standard required he found concentration to be key and although demanding, kept practicing until he felt natural performing the different techniques.

Now having completed the course, Lewis is looking to find himself an apprenticeship to further his knowledge of welding as well as developing his welding technique until he feels confident enough to weld fully independently.


Canal Engineering is proud to announce that Lewis is now an employee at the company and has now started his Intermediate Apprenticeship Course at the CEATA Training Academy.
