I would like to thank the staff of Charles Keene college(Leicester college), and Loughborough College.
I started off as a sparky, did day release, c&g 236, p1,2,C, testing and inspection, supplementary electronics. Never quite finished my Hnc, gave back and did some lecturing at evening school. I moved to Canada, where my practical experience, has allowed me to become a designer for a consulting engineering firm, one of the best in the country.
But, without the initial quality of the training as a spark, I would not now be able to tell professional engineers what to do.
Quality should not be dropped in the training, as without it, I wouldn't have the experiences, and professional respect I have now.
I have done residential, industrial,plc software, design, commissioning, HV, generators, protection relaying, Profibus, Fibre optics.
My firm had a internal technical conference, last year, with staff from across the country, I presented 5, out of 20 presentations.
