After a very successful few days at the Fit Show, the Fenestration College have come away not only with a pile of extra leads but the excitement of Arron Clegg of Eco-Sash winning first place in the Master fitter competition! This came with a trophy and a cool £5k prize. Scott Higgs of Polar Windows came second taking home the £3k prize and Nigel Grant of Nigel Grant Upvc came third taking £2k home.
The awards were announced at the gala dinner on Wednesday night, right in the middle of the event followed by some entertainment by Ed Byrne.
Arron installed one window and one door in the competition; It was all recorded and played live to the rest of the centre. All the finalists were assessed in the same way by GQA Qualification’s assessors and chose Arron as the winner. Health and safety is obviously a large factor of these demonstrations and Arron showed he knew his stuff.
Arron can proudly display his Master fitter 2013 badge on his website along side his GQAwards 2010 Apprentice of the year badge. He sets a great example of what training can achieve.
After his recent success at the prestigious FIT show Masterfitter Competition, Arron Clegg said:
“It is such an honour to be recognised as the industry’s #1 Masterfitter. Id like to thank all the people involved, in particular the guys at the Fenestration College for all their support and the training I have received – They are true dedicated professionals within the industry.
It was a tough competition, between some talented and competent installers who have a true dedication to their profession..
I would also like to say a HUGE thank you to the organisers co-ordinators and sponsors, who ran the competition
On a final note, I feel that winning such a prestigious title, is a real acknowledgement that installing to a high quality, having an attention to detail and most importantly having a passion for what I do, really pays off.
Andy Clegg of the Fenestration College Added:
”Well where do you start???? Obviously above all else I am ever so slightly biased with Arron being my son so Very Proud Dad springs to mind.
Moving on from that I think that the calibre of entrants in this the very first Master Fitter Competition for our Industry stood out as they guys performed in difficult conditions, under the spot light of Cameras, Assessors and onlookers and still managed to produce quality installations.
The FIT show 2013 was always going to be ‘’Something Else’’ and it proved to be just that. I have to share with you how very very surprised I was with the number of companies and individuals that visited the Fenestration College stand with an outstanding desire to want to actually train their fabricators, installers and surveyors. Enquires from India and America following our recent stint in Dubai confirms the suspicions that other countries look to the UK for TRAINING and COMPETENCE.”
With discussions already underway as to what we have up our sleeves for Masterfitter 2014 exiting times for the Training fraternity.
A big congratulation to Arron and everyone involved
