Engineers of Tomorrow Competition at IFSEC 2016

Apprentices from Telcam Security Systems, SES Alarms of Yeovil and Banham triumphed in the heats during the Engineers of Tomorrow competition at IFSEC 2016.

25th October 2016

Over three days 64 Apprentice Engineers pitted their skills against one another in a security installation competition.

Competitors had 90 minutes in which to install and find faults with a security system. The overall winners and their employers will be invited to the prestigious Security and Fire Excellence Awards, which take place in November in London, where the Engineer of Tomorrow 2016 winner will be anointed to claim a £1,000 prize.

“By winning the heat, our Apprentices have shown they are using the extensive skills already learnt in their first year, both at college and on site with ourselves, and we look forward to supporting their further development.” SES Alarms of Yeovil.

Sponsored by CSL, NSI, SSAIB and Skills for Security the competition serves as a platform through which Apprentices and engineers not only burnish their credentials as installers/engineers but help to raise the profile of their employers too.

The winners also earn NVQ portfolio credits.
