Are you going to the FIT Show, we are! Last year’s inaugural show was very successful with almost 6,000 visitors and 170 exhibitors. Now, that’s a huge achievement. In fact it was so successful it is going to take place all over again this year from 10-12th June at the Telford International Centre.
For the second year running we are very pleased to be sponsoring the FIT Show 2014 Master Fitter Challenge. We are committed to raising standards within the Fenestration industry and what better way than encouraging installers to showcase their installation skills and have some fun in the process.
The challenge involves eight installers installing a window and door over two days, fast and efficiently, observing installation best practice, health and safety procedures, using great customer care and to the strict criteria established by GQA assessors and the Fenestration College. If all that didn’t present a big enough challenge, the installers will have to work with their peers and the thousands of visitors at the show looking on!
Not only will each installer be competing for his honour and professional pride but also for a share of the £10,000 prize fund. The winners will have their moment of glory at the FIT Show Gala Dinner where their success will be announced to the 800 guests. This event will certainly be the highlight of the show.
If you are interested in taking part in the challenge you must register by completing an online application form. The next stage will involve a telephone interview where you will need to answer some technical questions. If you pass this stage successfully, you will then be visited on-site by one of the assessors who will observe you working. From all the information collated from these stages the Assessment team will then select the eight individual installers to take part in the Master Fitter Challenge at the FIT Show.
