Aico are proud to announce their partnership with the Scottish Electrical Charitable Training Trust (SECTT). This collaboration will see Aico deliver Fire Industry Association accredited CPD training to apprentices throughout Scotland.

After participating in an Aico Expert Installer training session delivered to Motherwell college,  SECTT Training and Development Manager Barrie Mckay impressed with the content, felt the training would be of great benefit to the 1st and 2nd year electrical apprenticeship students that SECTT manage, Scotland wide. He comments “Aico have been fantastic with us and are always keeping us up to date; some of the technology coming through now is ground breaking and exciting for the future so it’s great that the apprentices will learn all about standards, legislation and all of these new technologies coming through. We are delighted to be working in partnership with the market leader in Fire & Carbon Monoxide protection.”

Aico Regional Specification Manager for Central Scotland, Tony Boyle said of the collaboration “I can’t speak highly enough of the work that SECTT do and it’s exciting to be working in partnership with them. Having been through the SECTT apprenticeship training scheme myself, I know first-hand how important it is that apprentices are working with the right products to do the job properly. I’m also looking forward to delivering the training together with my colleagues in Scotland to over 700 students annually knowing that the apprentices attending are the future of the industry.” As Aico are Electrical Industries Charity (EIC) Champions, they will also facilitate mental health awareness sessions for students, delivered by the EIC. This new strategic approach to training will see Aico have invaluable contact with colleges and students, that was not possible before.

The partnership will provide first and second year electrical apprentices with training on alarm selection, siting, installation, standards and legislation and new technologies. Aico alarms have been distributed to SECTT’s assessment centres in Edinburgh, Glasgow, and Aberdeen to give practical, hands-on training to students. David Henderson, Assessment Centre Manager at SECTT, comments “I have used Aico alarms for a number of years. The quality of the alarms is second to none and they really have to be in these test centre environments where they are being installed repeatedly by the students, they hold up well and are extremely robust. I can’t thank Aico enough as these alarms will improve the experience for anyone coming to do their assessments here or at the other centres.”
