Engineering laboratory apprentices at Precision Acoustics

Precision Acoustics is currently looking to recruit an aspiring laboratory technician to join its award-winning team, following the successful completion of our current apprentice, Tamsin Knott.

Tamsin was the first lab technician apprentice to be hired by Precision Acoustics in 2014, having completed a BTEC Applied Science course at Weymouth College. Tamsin still has 4 months left of the Advanced Laboratory Technician Apprenticeship - which is endorsed by the National Physical Laboratory - and plans on continuing to study for a higher qualification, something that will also be supported by Precision Acoustics.

The new apprentice will work alongside a second lab technician, Rebecca Hallett, who joined as an apprentice two months ago.

Precision Acoustics boasts 25 years of research and development of ultrasonic test and imaging equipment including cancer-detecting technology, which is used extensively in the academic and health industries. The company is based in its premises in Higher Bockhampton.

Tamsin says: "I was curious to join Precision Acoustics to find out what the company does and how - and the experience so far has been extraordinary. I have not only been able to learn so much about the very sophisticated products that the company develop but also learned many essential skills I had previously had no idea about. This includes developing reporting and communication skills and learning how to use tools such as PowerPoint for presentations."

The company is now considering taking on further apprentices in 2017.

Managing Director Gary Livingstone adds: "Our apprenticeships have been a great success so far and we are very keen on passing on our knowledge and skills to young men and women who are keen to get a better understanding of how this industry works and the opportunities within it."
