TRAINING - DELIVERY - COMMUNITY

Dan joined MAP Group UK in October 2018 following seven years in the Armed Forces. He now works as a surveyor.

What was your background prior to joining MAP Group?

When I left school at 16, I joined the British Army as a Royal Engineer and served for 7 years. Throughout my time in the Army I had the opportunity to travel around the world to places such as Kenya, Canada, Austria and Iraq, involving myself in various tours and opportunities such as skiing. When leaving the Army, I was given the opportunity to enrol onto a CTTS Telecommunications course. This was where the doors opened for me to start my career as a telecommunications engineer. Once I finished this 5 week course course, I applied for MAP Group and was taken on as a trainee for 3 months. This was the beginning of the support I experienced from everyone at MAP to becoming a highly skilled lead engineer.

What training programmes have you been involved in?

N26 SA001 SA002 K08 A009. I am also in the process of completing the IOSH Managing Safely course.

What made you select your chosen career?

My career as a Telecoms Engineer has been influenced from numerous factors, such as the course at the end my career in the army, to being employed by MAP and being placed on different courses.

How did these training programmes ensure you were ready for your career?

The training I was provided with from MAP group helped me make sure i was ready for my career, by providing me with full training and understanding of the Openreach network. By providing me with this i have expanded my knowledge and experience and it has helped me greatly by taking the step into planning/surveying.

What does a typical day look like in your role?

My typical day has varied throughout my career in MAP, as no two days are the same. As a telecommunications my day would normally include driving to the office picking up some PON packs to survey. Turn up to site to record my findings and go back to the apartment/hotel to build the Network on Orion. Updating the Survey managers with D poles found and A55 trackers.
