Welcome to the trade Mike.
Don`t mean to sound like an old fart, but.....
listen and learn, and as much as some of the older joiners will annoy you don`t bite!
I`ve got an apprentice working with me now who`s not interested, so we just send him to the shops for the lads.
What a waste of an apprenticeship.
So as I`ve said listen and learn and ask relevant questions and you should be okay, good luck.
