Capricorn Rising Stars Nominations Close 30 April, 2019

Recognising, rewarding and retaining outstanding future auto repairers.

Here's your chance to encourage and recognise your apprentice for being such an outstanding future auto repairer.

In its second year, Capricorn Rising Stars helps Members recognise, reward and retain high performing apprentices. These are apprentices who show initiative in the workshop, eagerness to learn and commitment to the auto industry. There are prizes, training and 'money can't buy experiences' up for grabs for the winner, the Capricorn Member that nominates them and our finalists.

By recognising the contribution of automotive apprentices and the bright careers they have ahead of them, we hope to continue to attract the best talent and keep more young auto repairers working in the industry.

Nominate your star apprentice by completing the online entry form. From there we will contact your apprentice by email to complete their entry for judging.

With a shortage of qualified mechanics to go around, it's up to all of us to take on and encourage apprentices that are passionate about the auto industry.

Nominations for the Capricorn Rising Star 2019 have now closed. Thanks to all who have nominated and submitted applications.

Lookout for updates in Ignition and CapChat or speak to your Area Manager. Finalists announced July 2019. Winner announced August 2019.
