First Northern Ireland college given Fujitsu academy status
Fujitsu has also donated a modern air-conditioning and heating system to the college
South Eastern Regional College (SERC) in Northern Ireland has become the first college in the country to be certified as a Fujitsu Training Academy by the Japanese air-conditioning manufacturer.
The newly accredited college is the first in NI to be granted academy status for the training of individuals who represent the future of the air-conditioning and heating industry.
To celebrate the distinction, Fujitsu presented SERC with a modern air-conditioning and heating system, designed and manufactured by Fujitsu, using the most advanced technology available today in the HVAC industry.
The generous donation will be used for the skill development of SERC apprentices at the college’s Lisburn campus. However, it will also prove valuable for the further training of current HVAC engineers, who can use the new system to learn about the latest developments in heat recovery technology.
Martyn Ives, of Fujitsu Air Conditioning, said the firm had been impressed with the air-conditioning and heating department at SERC, inspiring Fujitsu to further “enhance training and skills development” at the college.
The new partnership between SERC and Fujitsu will push the HVAC industry in Northern Ireland to greater heights, as future and current engineers to pass through the college will be well prepared for the competitive and growing industry and its newest innovations.
Terry Nickels, lecturer at SERC, said: “This new technology will allow our apprentices and engineers in the sector to train on the latest heat recovery equipment. We pride ourselves on developing work ready graduates and modern equipment is critical to enable us to do this. I really want to thank Fujitsu for their generous donation.”
