After completing his Level 1 and Level 2 VRQ, Pathways Training was approached by the Mid and West Wales Fire Service who wished to recruit an apprentice. Pathways liaised with the Motor Vehicle department and two suitable candidates were selected and put forward for the vacancy. Kristian was successful in his application and he started working with the organisation.

He has achieved a Distinction in every online examination for his VRQ, he consistently meets set targets and is making excellent progress on his VCQ portfolio.
