Entries open for ACR Trainee of the Year Award

TOTYUK: Entries are invited for this year’s ACR Trainee of the Year Award, the annual competition for refrigeration and air conditioning trainees and apprentices.

The ACR Trainee of the Year Awards are designed to both encourage young trainees and apprentices and support the specialist training colleges and companies that are so vital to providing a solid set of skills and knowledge to the trainees. Run on a not-for-profit basis, to date the awards have given back a total of £25,000 into the industry for training.

Last year, six finalists and over 170 guests enjoyed the awards presentation ceremony at The Belfry, near Birmingham.

For further details and to enter, visit www.acrtoty.uk. Closing date for entries is September 8.

This year’s awards will be presented at The Belfry on December 8.
