Applications Open for SSAIB-Supported North East Engineers of Tomorrow Regional Heat at Access Training

The Engineers of Tomorrow competition, which sees young security apprentices compete against each other in a live installation challenge, will return to IFSEC International in 2019 for its 21st anniversary. Due to the high demand for places, regional heats will be taking place this year.

The North East regional heats will be taking place at Access Training, Team Valley, Gateshead on the 7th and 8th May 2019. The competition will be organised by the staff at Access Training and SSAIB training manager Trevor Jenks, with the winners being given the chance to take part in the national competition at IFSEC in June.

The top two apprentices will be invited to take part in the competition, taking place over three days at London ExCeL, which will pit more than 60 young engineers – working in teams of two – against each other. The top five teams from the overall competition – which takes place over IFSEC and FIREX - will be invited to the Security & Fire Excellence Awards in November, where the winning places will be announced.
