Inside View from DROMONE’s MAMF Apprentice John McCarthy…

“Hi! My name is John McCarthy and I’ve been an Apprentice in DROMONE since 2017. In 6 months time, I will be fully qualified in my trade and I can’t thank DROMONE enough for my training. After secondary school, I attended Technological University Dublin where I engaged in off-the-job training which required math’s, science and many practical’s. When completed, I interviewed for an Apprenticeship role within DROMONE and I have since worked alongside some great people and learned many things. DROMONE has many machines such as laser cutting, CNC machining and robot welding which I have become extremely skilled at. I would recommend this program to anyone interested in Apprenticeships!”
