Apprenticeships at RDM Electrical and Mechanical Services
It’s been a great privilege for us, here at RDM Electrical and Mechanical Services, to help support, train, mentor and inspire the next generation of building services engineers during our 33-year long history.
We are, therefore, delighted to continue our award-winning training heritage by welcoming four new apprentices to the team this month: two as heating and ventilation apprentices and two as electrical engineers. In addition, we have sponsored a fifth to continue his professional development with us as part of a two-year HNC course in Building Services Engineering.
Embarking on a three-year apprenticeship through BESA (Building Engineering Services Association) at Cardiff Vale College, our two heating and ventilation apprentices are Sam Coleman and Joshua Mabe.
Their course will cover a variety of industrial, commercial and domestic skills. Course modules include the safe use of plant and equipment, installation of copper and low carbon piping, installation and design requirements of hot and cold water heating systems, the use of welding technology and equipment, and all associated health, safety and risk assessment techniques and practices.
Upon completion of their apprenticeships, they will achieve an NVQ Level 3 in mechanical engineering services, and a provisional Building Engineering Services Competence Assessment license upon successful completion of testing to BESCA standards.
Our two electrical apprentices – Troy Davies and Luke Byrne – are also undertaking a four-year apprenticeship, though in their case through JTL at Neath Port Talbot College.
The course will see them attain a Level 3 Electrotechnical qualification in installation and maintenance. The course covers modules including electrical scientific principles and technologies, design and installation practices, understanding terminations and connections of conductors, fault diagnosis and rectification, and all associated health, safety and environmental considerations.
In addition to these apprentices in mechanical and electrical engineering services, we are very happy to sponsor a fifth, Mo Elgamal, by enrolling him on to a two-year level 4 HNC course in Construction and the Built Environment (Building Services Engineering) at Bridgend College.
Mo’s course will see him learn more about construction technology, science and materials, construction practice and management, mathematics for construction, and the principles of design and installation for heating services, ventilation and air-conditioning.
We, at RDM, wish all of them a successful and enjoyable apprenticeship within the building services industry, and we are sure they have bright futures ahead of them.
