Career in energy sector


© 2020, Matīss Gailis

I am proud that I studied and mastered my chosen profession at the Riga State Technical School.

Outside of my studies, I took part in the professional mastery competitions “Kurzeme Electrical Installation 2017” and “Skills Latvia 2019”, where I have succeeded. Now I have an opportunity to take part in Euro Skills 2020.

I developed my practicaL skills at JSC “Augstsprieguma tīkls” and after graduating from the technical schoool, I work in this company as an electrician. I consider all the practical and theoretical knowledge gained during the technical school as a starting point in my career in the energy sector.
