Calling all apprentices – the 2011 SkillFRIDGE competition is looking for the industry’s most promising talent to be named the UK’s best refrigeration and air conditioning engineer.
During the competition, organised by SummitSkills, entrants will be assessed on a series of challenging practical tests reflecting their day-to-day work. A semi-final will be held before a UK grand final in September.
This year will see SkillFRIDGE finalists competing side-by-side with those from SkillPLUMB, SkillPIPE and SkillELECTRIC at a prestigious event that will also feature the UK final of construction competition SkillBUILD.
“Taking part in SkillFRIDGE is not only highly motivational for employees but also drives them to achieve higher standards back in the workplace,” said Neil Collishaw, head of skills competitions and awards at SummitSkills. “Past competitors have gone on to become an even greater asset to their employers and a inspirational role model for their peers.”
The closing date to register for the competition is 24 March 2011. Call 01908 303972 for more information or visit http://www.worldskillsuk.org/competitions/built-environment/refrigeration
