The competition aims to help tackle the growing engineering skills gap and attract and retain the next generation of security and fire systems installers.
Apprentices will compete in regional heats held at selected colleges across the UK. Finalists will then go on in pairs to showcase their skills in a 3-hour installation challenge, where they must install and commission an intruder or fire alarm system, which will include tracking and amending system faults on the latest technology.
The top performing teams will be announced at IFSEC 2019. These teams and their employers are then invited to the Security & Fire Excellence Awards, taking place 20th November 2019 at the London Hilton, Park Lane. Cash prizes will be awarded to overall winners (£1,000), runners-up (£500) and for third place (£300).
