The owners of Bracknell-based HVAC specialist Campbell West have gone back to the future to strengthen the company’s workforce and air conditioning services.
Steven Campbell and Daniel West left school to become apprentice plumbers and have now shown their continued faith in the training system with a £10,000 investment in two members of the team.
Frank Smith and Tommy Gill have boosted their skillset by completing a 15-day new starter refrigeration course at Ellis Training in Hertfordshire, becoming certified F-Gas engineers in the process.
Director Daniel West said: “We are committed to ensuring we offer customers the highest possible standards which is why we invest in our people, so they’re equipped with the very latest skills and expertise.
“Steven and I are both products of the apprenticeship system which we still see as key to maintaining the company’s growth. So we’re delighted Frank and Tommy did Campbell West proud by passing this challenge with flying colours and we know they will enhance our air conditioning service.”
The Refrigeration, Air Conditioning & Heat Pump Systems City & Guilds course mainly involves practical sessions, learning to use tools and equipment and installing systems. The pair will hone their new skills by carrying out some of the smaller air conditioning installations Campbell West has on its order book.
