NSI sponsors IFSEC apprentice skills challenge.

National Security Inspectorate : 17 April, 2008  (Company News)
Popular apprentice skills challenge at the IFSEC security exhibition to be sponsored this year by the National Security Inspectorate.
The National Security Inspectorate (NSI) is delighted to announce that it is to be the main sponsor for this year's Apprentice Skills Challenge, which takes place at IFSEC, at the NEC, Birmingham, on 12-15 May. NSI, which has supported the event for nine years, will present each of the two winners of this year's competition with Red Letter Day vouchers worth £500 each.

The Apprentice Skills Challenge is open to apprentices currently employed by electronic security systems installation companies and is designed to motivate and encourage excellence. This year's entrants, working in teams of two, will pit their skills against one another by identifying faults in an intruder alarm system, add additional protection and re-commission the system to PD6662 and EN Standards. All this must be conducted in-line with industry Standards and Codes of Practice, within a 90-minute time limit.

NSI's Chief Executive, Andrew White commented, "We are pleased to take on the mantle of main sponsor for this worthy event. One of the major problems in the security industry is the lack of skilled technicians joining the industry. Without investment in our future then all the Standards in the world will count for little if there are insufficient people to install security systems."

The Challenge takes place over the four days of IFSEC. The top three teams will then be invited to the Security Excellence Awards dinner later in the year where the overall winners will receive their prize.
