(Pictured) BRIGHT SPARK: Edval Boa Morte Santos enrolled at NMIT after being a martial arts instructor.

It’s never too late to learn

NMIT is set to deliver Edval Boa Morte Santos a new career at age 46.

Santos has been a martial arts instructor for the past 31 years and moved to Australia from his native Brazil 20 years ago.

But he is no stranger to the electrical field, having followed a course in Brazil in his teens.

“I worked with my father who was a builder,” he said. “That was until I travelled overseas.”

After earning his living in Australia by teaching capoeira, a Brazilian martial art, Santos decided it was time for a change and completed his electrical appreticeship at NMIT last year.

“I have decided I would like to do something new and start again. I want to make a better life and be a good example to my kids,” says the father of six.

Because English is not his first language, completing the pre-appreticeship was not easy, Santos says, but he appreciates the help he recieved at NMIT.

“Everyone was very helpful and I was very happy with the support they gave me,” he said.
