First stage of Apprentice Competition comes to a close

Release Date: 09/01/2019

More than 650 students have entered this year's NICEIC and ELECSA Apprentice of the Year competition.

Stage one of the contest closed at Christmas and the judges are now working their way through all the entries to see who goes through to the next phase.  Stage one was an online, multiple choice quiz of 40 questions.

Darren Staniforth, NICEIC and ELECSA's Senior Technical Presenter said: "Its great to see so many people getting involved in this year's competition.

"This is the fourth year of the competition so we are pleased to see that it is gaining more and more momentum and recognition."

The second stage will see the top 20% of the contestants who completed stage one take part in a written 11/2 hr exam that will be held at several locations across the UK and will be marked by industry experts Darren Staniforth, Jake Green and Tony Cable.

The top 8 students will then take part in the Grand Final on the 4th June 2019 at the headquarters of our competitions partner The Scolmore Group
