Refrigeration and Air Conditioning students launch SkillFRIDGE
Eastleigh College students continue to lead the way in the Refrigeration and Air Conditioning industry, as three apprentices showcase their skills in a series of tasks at the national HVAC and Refrigeration Show next week.
The HVAC and Refrigeration Show is the UK’s only dedicated exhibition for the refrigeration, air conditioning, ventilation, heating and heat pump sectors, and is an opportunity for businesses to network and take part in debates. The event will also see the launch of the prestigious SkillFRIDGE 2018 competition.
Last year Eastleigh College students Jack and Stephen competed in the SkillFRIDGE finals, with Jack winning gold. To champion their success and promote industry standards, the students will attend the launch in London, to demonstrate their high-quality skills and set the bar for this year’s competition. Fellow student Kai, will also join them and take part in his first competition.
Eastleigh College is also proud to win an award at the ACR News awards evening which takes place on Wednesday 24th January. The award highlights the College as the current SkillFRIDGE champion’s training provider and recognises the support and guidance offered to students, enabling them to be the skilled professional they want to be.
Shaun Creech, Lecturer in Refrigeration and Air Conditioning comments on the award, “I’m extremely proud of both students for getting into the finals last year as a result of their hard-work and commitment. We do the best we can to support students through their training and help them to be the best they can be. We’re looking forward to what this year’s competition may bring.”
