Apprentice Competition 2016

January 10th, 2017

Fred Riseborough and Dale Reece from Anglian Water win Instrumentation Apprentice Competition

After a hugely successful debut in 2014 the Instrumentation Apprentice Competition returned to the Wastewater & Environmental Monitoring Conference (WWEM) on the 2nd November 2016.

The competition recognises the important of apprenticeships within the water sector and gives instrumentation apprentices the opportunity to extend their knowledge and demonstrate their skills by competing in a series of problem solving, practical and question based exercises. The competition is organised by WRc and SWIG (Sensors for Water Interest Group) with support from Partech Instruments, Siemens, ABB, Siris Environmental, ATi and the organisers of WWEM.

This year five teams from UK water companies competed over a full day of activities including practical testing and a quick fire quiz. The winners were announced at the WWEM Gala dinner in front of an audience of over 300 industry professionals.

Congratulations to Fred Riseborough and Dale Reece from Anglian Water who were crowned 2016 winners. They win training days with Siemens and ABB as well as the trophy. All the apprentices received a free ticket to a SWIG event of their choice, a power pack, WRc goodie bag and a certificate.
