Aico has teamed up with the Scottish Electrical Charitable Training Trust (SECTT), with Aico delivering Fire Industry Association-accredited CPD training to apprentices throughout Scotland.
After taking part in an Aico Expert Installer training session at Motherwell college, SECTT training and development manager Barrie Mckay said, “Aico has been fantastic with us and is always keeping us up to date – some of the new developments are ground-breaking and really exciting, so it’s great that the apprentices will learn all about standards, legislation and all of these new technologies coming through.”
Tony Boyle, regional specification manager for Central Scotland, Aico, said, “I can’t speak highly enough of the work that SECTT do and it’s exciting to be working in partnership with them. Having been through the SECTT apprenticeship scheme myself, I know first-hand how important it is that apprentices are working with the right products to do the job properly.”
The partnership will provide first- and second-year electrical apprentices with training on alarm selection, siting, installation, standards and legislation and new technologies. Aico alarms have been distributed to SECTT’s assessment centres in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen to give practical, hands-on training to apprentices.
