Registration opens for SkillFRIDGE 2019

Registration is now open for the 2019 cycle of SkillFRIDGE, the competition which aims to put the RACHP industry on the map, tackling the UK skills crisis while helping young engineers to develop their careers.

The RACHP industry is intrinsic to modern life in the developed world; it keeps our food fresh and our buildings comfortable, it ensures the safe storage of medicines and helps to keep our data centres running in this digital age.

However, despite its vital role, the UK RACHP industry – along with the entire engineering sector – is facing a major skills shortage.

SkillFRIDGE, in partnership with WorldSkills UK and a network of top industry sponsors, is working to tackle this crisis head-on, highlighting the importance of RACHP skills and the many rewarding career opportunities available to young people entering the industry.

The competition is undoubtedly challenging, but it is precisely this fact that makes it worthwhile. Last year’s gold medallist, Dominic Dray from Royale Refrigeration and Air Conditioning, explained: “Being able to say that I won the gold medal is a great feeling, especially because it’s a tough competition that really does test your skills and knowledge. It’s a chance to show others what you can do, and having got through it successfully will stand me in good stead for my future career.”
