The equipment will ensure that local businesses and the engineers of tomorrow have the skills to operate and maintain modern day, energy efficient technology.
The new boilers have been installed at the college’s Newtownards campus and the new Professional Skills Centre in Nutts Corner which is set to open in September. The equipment will be used to upskill both engineers already working in the sector as well as SERC apprentices.
SERC Lead Business Manager, Paul Henry, said “We pride ourselves on developing work-ready graduates and modern equipment is critical to enable us to do this. This will give engineers and apprentices the skills they need to be successful in the sector and maintain a competitive edge. On behalf of the College I would like to take this opportunity to thank Warmflow for the very generous donation.”
Warmflow Sales Director, Oliver Cormican, added, “As a local company, based in Lisburn, developing a partnership with SERC was a natural fit. Through supplying new, Warmflow boilers to the college, we hope to ensure that the next generation of installers have the opportunity to work on state of the art, modern technology to ensure they are adequately equipped for their future career.
“We have enjoyed a long-standing relationship with our local college and are delighted to have the opportunity to provide equipment that will enhance training and skills development within the region.”
