After many years with the company, we say goodbye to Carl Smith, one of our engineering instructors.

16th February 2022

After first joining HETA in 1975 as an apprentice, Carl went on to spend a large part of his career serving our country in the Royal Navy.

During the 23 years Carl spent in the Armed Forces, he served in both the Falklands and Gulf War, before coming back to HETA over 10 years ago as an instructor.


Over this period, Carl established himself as an astute trainer, he states that one of his proudest moments during his time at HETA was when a student received a ‘best apprentice in the area’ award.


One of the things he loved the most about being an instructor was watching the progression of apprentices, from first starting to receiving their qualification and beginning long term careers as qualified engineers.


The entire HETA team wish you the very best in your retirement and appreciate the great work you’ve done during your time here.
