Picture: CHLOE ERLICH Chris, 17 looks set to be in demand By NICK CALACOURAS TRADE apprentice Chris Bird is playing it cool and one day he should be a hot property in Alice Springs. For 17-year-old Chris will be in demand when he has served his time as as an electrical apprentice with a refrigeration and airconditioning firm. His employer Brendon Taylor said Chris was taken on earlier this year and has not looked back. Mr Taylor said: We try to run as many apprencticeships as possible. Every trade is calling out for tradesmen. Mr Taylor took advantage of the last round ofNTGovernment employer incentives, receiving $7000 to take on Chris as his fourth apprentice. Mr Taylor said that Alice Springs used to see plenty of transient tradesmen who were willing towork for sixmonths to a year. He said: We used to get five or six coming into town every year. Now we might get one, and everyone competes for him. Mr Taylor said that tradesmen must now be hired from overseas or trained locally. The NT Government has just announced the fifth round of empoyer incentive funding, offering another 50 businesses the $7000 bonus to train anapprentice to fill skills shortages. Eligible Employment Minister Paul Henderson said: Since February 2004, more than 800 incentives have been granted to employers of eligible apprentices and trainees. They have been hired to train as chefs, plumbers, hair dressers, mechanics, glaziers, cabinetmakers, bakers, electricians, welders, retailers, carpenters, horticulturalists, pest controllers and irrigation installers.
