CLINTON Larkings from Dubbo was awarded a silver medal in the category of Industrial Mechanics Millwright at the Worldskills competition in Russia.
Thrilled with his success, Clinton thanked his family for supporting him throughout the competition.
“To start this journey as just a second year apprentice manual turner and to learn all the extra skills has just made me a better tradie and has boosted my confidence through the roof,” Clinton wrote on his Facebook page.
