Two members of the KNX UK Association, KNX Consultants and Ivory Egg, have been playing a major role in training potential members of the UK team for the WorldSkills 2011 competition at ExCel in London from 5 to 8 October. Young electricians Scott Wigmore and Chris Young undertook the KNX basic-certification course, required for KNX Partner status, under the guidance of Ben Lewis of KNX Consultants. Training took place at the offices of Ivory Egg, a registered training centre for KNX technology.

WorldSkills is a global competition where young people from across the world compete to become the ‘best of the best’. A thousand competitors from 50 nations will complete in 45 skills.

The international KNX Association has reinforced its commitment to developing the workforce of the future with its role as Presenting Sponsorship for the Electrical Installations sector of the competition.

The winner of the electrical-installations category at the 2009 WorldSkills was also trained by KNX Consultants and used KNX in his winning entry. In 2011, KNX is the specified technology to be used in this category.

The 5-day course is a path to KNX Partner status. It includes the concept and theory of KNX, practical training in the use of the KNX ETS software programming tool and a KNX certification examination.
