Four of The Automated Technology Group’s new manufacturing team – Ricky Jackson, Andy Voller, Michal Majowski and Darren Downs – are undertaking their engineering training at the group’s Silsoe headquarters. Part of their Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Electrical and Electronic Engineering with Central Bedfordshire College, the training covers basic electrical principles, conduit and tracking systems, safe isolation and risk assessment, along with testing and method statements for testing and commissioning of low-voltage switchgear panels. The course has been delivered at the college site and at Silsoe, mixing classroom-based theory with practical sessions.
Alvin Bebita, Electrical/Electronic Assessor (Apprenticeships) at Central Bedfordshire College, commented: “All four students have demonstrated a high standard of work, as well as an enthusiasm for the subject. As a result, they are on track to complete the course ahead of schedule.”
Gavin Lodge, Production Manager for The Automated Technology Group, said: “The bespoke training programme run by the college has proven to be highly successful and the students are a great asset to the team. They have already applied their new skills to current projects in their day-to-day work and they are supporting the department’s planned growth and development programme. We look forward to awarding the students with their NVQ qualification certificates this autumn.”
