Okuma Apprentice Mentoring Program

Okuma Australia has a long term commitment to continue to build a talented, diverse and engaged workforce to not only develop our own business but also to assist our customers.

Developing our Apprentices is part of this continued investment in the growth of our future technical team.

“By investing in Apprentices, we are investing in the longevity and future of our business”, commented Dean McCarroll, Managing Director, Okuma Australia + New Zealand.


Recently we launched the Okuma Apprentice Mentoring Program. 

This Apprentice Mentoring program involves every department of Okuma Australia and offers an introduction and insights into the different facets of our business.  There will be a strong focus on training on all Okuma CNC Machines and OSP controls but also plenty of engagement for the individual development of each apprentice.

“This mentoring program not only helps me learn more about Okuma machines specifically but also exposes me to all aspects of the Okuma business and that gives me a much broader understanding of how a multi-national business works”, commented Mitchell Norbis, Apprentice Service Engineer.

The Okuma Apprentice Mentoring Program will run parallel with the work they do at Okuma and also their Trade School commitments.
