IFSEC International, organised by UBM EMEA, have recently announced that all places on the prestigious Engineers of Tomorrow annual competition are now filled. 64 of the fire and security industry’s brightest young engineers will head to IFSEC International over the 21-23 June 2016 to put their skills against each other in a live installation challenge at Europe’s largest security exhibition.

Engineers of Tomorrow is part of Apprenticeships for Fire & Security, an initiative that places apprentices into careers in the security industry and supports their development. Supported by IFSEC, CSL DualCom, NSI, SSAIB and Skills for Security, the scheme has already helped launch the careers of more than 3,000 young apprentices. At the heart of the installation apprentice and young engineer industry, the competition will provide participants with a global stage to compete against their peers and represent their company.

Companies involved included; Fidelity Integrated Systems, Abel Alarm Co, Highgrade fire&security, Chubb F&S, CBRE, Tyco, Red Alert, VocalVale, H+J Martin, Ambush Security, Wessex Alarms, Captstan Security, Secure One, CIA, SES Yeovil, William Hale, Custom Alarms and the defending champions Tel Cam Security Systems and Kings Security.

90-minute live challenge at IFSEC 2016

The apprentice engineers will participate in the 90-minute live challenge that takes place on the lively exhibition floor at IFSEC International. They will then be assessed by a leading panel of judges from the security inspectorates, NSI and SSAIB, and points are allocated based on performance in the various disciplines.

Heat winners and their employers will be invited to the prestigious Security & Fire Excellence Awards, taking place on Wednesday 23 November 2016 where the final winner will be announced and awarded a £1000 cash prize.

Commenting on the competition, Simon Banks, Group Managing Director at CSL DualCom Group said “The huge take-up for IFSEC's Engineers of Tomorrow competition is in line with the Industry’s demand for better skills. The Fire and Security sector is committed to apprenticeships providing results for their businesses quickly, whilst creating a lasting professional workforce for the future. The competition allows employers and apprentices to showcase their skill sets on a world stage.”
