Engineers of Tomorrow apprentice competition marks 20th anniversary with new fire category

A competition in which engineering apprentices install security systems against the clock has celebrated its 20th edition at IFSEC International 2018 with a new fire category.

22nd August 2018

Working in pairs, 60 young engineers had 90 minutes in which to install and find faults with intruder alarm systems and, for the first time, fire alarm systems.

The introduction of a fire category followed a successful trial in 2017 and aligned the competition more closely with a new apprenticeship standard – the ‘Fire, Emergency and Security Systems Technicians Apprenticeship’ – developed by the Trailblazer Employer Group with the support of the FSA, BSIA, FIA and other key industry stakeholders.
