SERC apprentice Conal McCrissican, from Downpatrick, has been named a finalist in the Sparks UK competition to find the top Electrical Apprentice of the Year 2020.
Conal, 19, is a third year Level 3 Electrical Installation Apprentice employed by Ardglass-based SJ Savage Electrical. Conal won his place in a stiff competition which took place in Belfast last week. He beat off competitors from across Northern Ireland to secure a place in the finals, which will see top young electrical apprentices from across the UK bid for the title of Sparks Electrical Apprentice of the Year.
Electrical lecturer Steven Donnelly said: “Conal’s commitment to learning in the classroom and in the workplace is second to none. He has passed all the required examinations to date, achieving excellent results each time. Whilst in college he is attentive to his lecturer, supportive of his peers and a great example to others.”
Conal’s employer, Steven Savage from SJ Savage Electrical, said: “Conal is a very smart young man and is quick to learn. He has been working on some shop fit out jobs in which he has gained brilliant experience. We are very proud of him and he deserves this win, which is all down to his own hard work and dedication.”
