An RCR Tomlinson WA-based third-year apprentice, Sean Coffey, has been awarded the Coregas/Welding Technology Institute of Australia (WTIA) “Young Tradesperson of the Year” for 2007.

The award includes a two week study trip to Germany and Austria in late June.

According to the President International Institute of Welding’s executive director Chris Smalllbone, all entrants were impressive, however, one particular entrant stood out among the rest.

“The selection panel was most impressed with all entries received, but deemed Sean the most outstanding young tradesperson for the year,” he said.

“We would also like to acknowledge the role RCR has played in Sean’s success.”

The award process included a practical examination and an essay component, with the latter seeing Sean produce the results that ultimately saw him chosen ahead of his peers.

RCR is proud of Sean’s achievement, with apprentice development manager Jamie Sharpe seeing the award win as recognition of both Sean’s ability and commitment to his chosen field, and an endorsement of RCR’s apprenticeship program.
