Capricorn Opens ‘Rising Stars’ Nominations

Capricorn has opened nominations for its Rising Stars apprentice awards for 2022.

According to Capricorn, Rising Stars acknowledges apprentices with a passion for automotive work, a positive can-do attitude, and a strong commitment to forging a long career as a repairer. The competition is open to all types of workshops and disciplines, and every apprentice nominated will receive a certificate.

Capricorn said entrants can win more than $20,000 in cash and prizes. The winner will receive $5000 to help support their apprenticeship while the top five finalists, including the overall winner, will receive $1000 cash, a $1000 Repco voucher and tickets to two Repco Masterclasses.

The nominating workshop of the overall winner will receive The Workshop Whisperer ‘Service Advisor Pro’ online training, valued at more than $3000.

Capricorn Group CEO David Fraser said the Rising Stars programme helps address the shortage of qualified repairers.

“Encouraging and acknowledging future leaders is an important part of growing and supporting the automotive industry. We at Capricorn wish to help members strengthen their teams and believe recognition and reward will help businesses attract and retain the best talent,” Fraser said.
