Hugo gained a wealth of knowledge and personal development through his apprenticeship in carpentry, completing Certificate III in Carpentry through Maxima Training Group and employer, Michael Kregar Building in Berri.
Beyond technical carpentry skills, Hugo is passionate about on-site mental health and was proud to organise training in partnership with 'Mates in Construction', for more than 40 trade professionals and sub-contractors from his organisation.
He also takes an active role in encouraging local young people to undertake apprenticeships in the industry.
Over the past two years, Hugo has been studying a Bachelor of Construction Management while completing his apprenticeship.
