Inaugural National Apprentice Award Winner 2016

Chris O'Brien



As a mature-age apprentice at Cooling Brothers in WA, Chris has built a rewarding career in the glass industry, with skills including glass processing and more recently the fabrication and installation of commercial glazing systems. As recipient of the AGGA's inaugural National Apprentice Award, Chris is to be commended for both his exceptional work ethic and commitment to his career in the glass industry.

This award should also recognise the quality training provided by Glass Skills Australia, Chris' registered training organisation, the support and collation of the content included in the award application prepared by the GWAWA, and also the professional guidance and support of the Cooling Brothers management team and work colleagues.
