Surprise for Scottish students

Apprentice electricians at Reid Kerr College in Paisley were given a surprise recently when industry legend Tony Cable dropped in to visit them whilst he was in Scotland for the NICEIC Tech Talk.

Tony Cable with apprentices

Cable, Senior Marketing and Events Engineer for NICEIC, chatted to the apprentices about his time in the industry and about his route from trainee sparky to TV expert. He then hosted a Q&A session with first and second stage electrical apprentices, providing invaluable advice and anecdotes from a career that spans some 50 years in the industry. Cable also spent time with pre-apprenticeship students providing advice on how to get into the electrical industry and how to stay in it.

Senior Lecturer in Electrical at Reid Kerr, David Walker said: “It is always an honour and a privilege to have Tony at the College. It was especially nice this time as we are now in a state of the art, purpose built building and he was very impressed with the plethora of renewable technologies offsetting the building’s energy usage. Tony agreed that as a training environment for these new apprentices it was second to none. It was a great experience for the apprentices to meet someone with such vast knowledge and experience in our industry and they thoroughly enjoyed the visit.”
