For those who missed the event, IFSEC Global is delighted to reveal the heat winners of the 19th annual ‘Engineers of Tomorrow’ competition, which takes place annually at IFSEC International.

The contest pits more than 60 young engineers against each other in an installation challenge taking place across three days at London ExCeL. Competitors have 90 minutes in which to install and find faults with a security system.

Overall heat winners and their employers will be invited to the Security & Fire Excellence Awards, taking place in November.

Heat winners:

  • Day one winners: Martin Hannaway and Corrie Stewart, New College Lanarkshire
  • Day two heat winners: Danny Harding and Max Wheeler, Chubb Fire & Security
  • Day three heat winners: Sean Reynolds and Josh Williams, Trinity Fire and Security Systems

Day one winners: Martin Hannaway and Corrie Stewart, New College Lanarkshire

 

Day two heat winners: Danny Harding and Max Wheeler, Chubb Fire & Security

 

Day three heat winners: Sean Reynolds and Josh Williams, Trinity Fire and Security Systems

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.

Launched 19 years ago by Skills For Security (then the Security Industry Training Organisation) as the Skills Apprentice Challenge, the Engineers of Tomorrow competition gave rise to the 100 in 100 initiative six years ago. Now called Apprentices for Fire and Security this initiative targets the placement of 100 security apprentices in 100 days.

Apprentices for Fire and Security, which was co-founded by Skills for Security and CSL DualCom group managing director Simon Banks, has already helped launch the careers of more than 3,000 young apprentices.

The winners also earn NVQ portfolio credits.

Enquiries are now open for 2018.
