The apprentices in Omexom Norway become energy fitters when they pass the trade test. As an energy fitter, you can work with voltage levels from 230V to 420 kV. The apprentices rotate every 6 months between different departments, specializing towards the end of the training. Then within either regional network or distribution network.
To become an energy fitter, you must have a background in electrical engineering or electrical energy in upper secondary school.
It is just as fun every autumn to welcome new apprentices. Many want to start in "learning" with us. We are part of a large group, which offers many opportunities. For us, it is a matter of course to show responsibility and take on apprentices, at any given time we have between 20 and 30 apprentices. We have for a number of years focused on apprentices, it has only been a positive journey.
