Murgon apprentice Karl Berlin has been named as a finalist in the Motor Trades Association of Queensland Apprentice of the Year award.
Karl, who works at Barambah Machinery, was selected as a finalist from more than 1800 MTA Institute apprentices throughout Queensland.
The award is presented to an MTA Institute apprentice who demonstrates a dedication to learning and performs above and beyond expectations.
Karl, who recently completed his AUR30416 Certificate III in Agricultural Mechanical Technology, is one of 10 finalists vying for the title.
He was nominated by his MTA Institute trainer Terry Palfrey due to his impressive quality of work.
“Karl’s book work is exemplary, and he is constantly receiving top marks for his work,” Terry said.
“He rises to every challenge and the feedback from clients is terrific. Karl deserves recognition for his hard work.”
The successful apprentice will be announced at the MTA Queensland Industry awards dinner on Saturday, November 16, in Brisbane.
“It will be great to enjoy a night like that,” Karl said.
“I don’t actually think too much about winning, although I would be very honoured if I did. I’m just proud to be a finalist.”
MTAQ chief executive Dr Brett Dale said he was thrilled to see apprentices from regional Queensland in the running.
