The Future of Work


KONE Apprentice Program

At KONE we are committed to ensuring our next generation is elevated through knowledge and skills to take them and KONE into the future. We currently offer Electrical Apprenticeships through a Certificate III in Electrotechnology Electrician. Our program is designed to give our apprentices technical and industry experience whilst deepening their non-technical skills. From Adelaide to Auckland, our apprentices contribute to enhancing each other’s learning and the learning of our future apprentices.


Experience at your fingertips!

Our apprentices spend time within our new construction, modernisation, and service businesses as part of our Rotation structure. Partnered with experienced electricians, rotations provide needed knowledge of our business before apprentices specialise in the area they love.

Support and Intakes

Our dedicated apprentice team ensures our apprentices are supported throughout their journey. Their expertise in learning as well as technical knowledge of our industry gives our apprentices opportunities to grow and develop which are unique to KONE. Our internal learning program is supported by the KONE Training Academy which uses simulators, virtual reality technology and gamification to create impactful learning experiences.


We encourage those interested in starting or continuing their electrical apprenticeship and are interested in the elevator industry, to apply for our program.
