Apprentice Installers to be Challenged at IFSEC 2008

IFSEC 2008 – 12-15 May 2008 – Birmingham NEC, UK
Apprentice installers will have the opportunity to pit their skills against each other in return for fantastic prizes and industry acclaim at IFSEC 2008, the world’s leading annual security event. The Apprentice Skills Challenge, in association with Skills for Security, SSAIB and the NSI, will require participants to carry out a fault-finding exercise prior to re-commissioning an existing system in line with EN standards.

In keeping with the changing landscape of security, the challenge has once again evolved for 2008, with the task requiring critical assessment, as well as installation skills. As in previous years, points will be allocated against the various disciplines, taking into account the different skills required. The team with the most points wins the challenge.

The contest has attracted huge interest from leading national companies in the security systems sector. Employers have recognised the importance of having their apprentices showcased at IFSEC where they have the opportunity to excel amongst their peers, and put their training into practice in public.

John Stanton at Skills for Security said: “Apprentice installers are the future of this industry and we should do everything possible to encourage them to uphold professional standards. The standard of entry at last year’s event was incredible and we are looking forward to seeing more of the same this year.”

IFSEC 2008 adjoins The Facilities Show and Safety & Health Expo at the NEC, Birmingham, taking place from 12/13-15 May 2008. Entry is free if you register in advance at, where the latest event information, news and seminar timetables are also available.

Companies interested in exhibiting at IFSEC 2008 should contact Charlie Cracknell on +44 (0)20 7921 8069 or
