Lizanne Mentoor

Cape Town, WC, South Africa




My name is Lizanne Mentoor, I'm a female boilermaker who qualified in Feb 2011 and do know I have to proof myself on the job.I do love what I do and excited to learn from my job everyday. I'm an eager learner and feed of information and learning new things.

I can read and write from drawings. I have knowledge in pipework and eager to learn more as I do not have much experience in it. I have Stainless steel (1mm-16mm) experience (including MIG and TIG) welding as well as Mild Steel (1.6mm-25mm) experience (including MIG and TIG). I have an extensive knowledge of various hand and power tools including machines and the strength to handle/work with them.

I enjoy technical activities and capable of working independently as well as in a team. I know my Health and Safety Rules and physically fit. I have good hand-eye co-ordination.

I am also willing to relocate anywhere required.
