When you start your career as a CLP apprentice, you will have real responsibilities on important jobs. You will have the chance to play a role in the construction, operation and maintenance of our power supply network, which provides electricity to Hong Kong.

About the Programme

In the three or four year Craft Apprentice Training Programme, you will gain basic technical skills in mechanical, electrical installation, electrical fitting, cable jointing and overhead lines. After that, you will be assigned to one of our engineering departments where you will have the opportunity to gain a wealth of practical experience.

Our Craft Apprentices’ stories

Many of them have progressed to senior engineering / technical positions in CLP. Some have also been awarded the “Outstanding Apprentice Award” by Hong Kong Vocational Training Council (VTC). Here are some of their stories.

"CLP broadens my horizons and enriches my life."

Yeung, Kin Man Jason
Senior Instructor
Power Systems Business Group / Engineering Training & Development

I joined the CLP family in August 2005. The company provided a three-year training to the fledgling apprentices like me. Not only did the programme stimulate my curiosity and novelty, it also brought me many “first-time” experiences.

It was my first time to touch high voltage equipment, my first experience of climbing a 10-storey electric pylon and my first opportunity to gain knowledge of occupational safety! All these experiences have made my life colourful and exciting! I was fortunate enough to enter and win the Plate 1st Runner-Up for the Occupational Safety quiz competition. These memorable experiences also brought me the Outstanding Apprentices Award as well as a cultural exchange trip to Singapore with the other 9 outstanding apprentices across Hong Kong.

CLP broadens my horizons and enriches my life. No matter what you do, being attentive, active and hardworking is the path to success.

"Take the challenge to bring out your talent! We warmly invite you to join our family!"

Chui, Man Ho
Power Systems Business Group / Engineering Projects

After completing the Basic Certificate for Technician Trainees in Electrical Engineering, I worked as a Craft Apprentice in CLP. During my three-year in-service training, I gained the opportunity to work in different departments of the Power System Business Group, enabling me to develop a comprehensive understanding of the company’s operations and prepared myself to adapt to my job.

Now, I am a Technician in Engineering Projects Department. I am honoured to have won the Outstanding Apprentice Award of Vocational Training Council (VTC). Not only should outstanding employees develop a positive learning attitude, they should also develop good communication skills for efficiency and performance.
