The 40 000th person to be issued with an Engineering Services SKILLcard is a service and maintenance engineer with Johnson Controls at South Queensferry in Scotland. George Bridges was presented with his card by Mike Taylor, president of the Heating & Ventilating Contractors’ Association.

George Bridges served an indentured apprenticeship under the auspices of the Joint Apprentices Council for the electrical-contracting industry and successfully completed a course on working safely in building service — thereby satisfying SKILLcard’s key health-and-safety requirements.

Ken Nall, director of services for Johnson Controls, said, ‘It is becoming increasingly important for service providers to be able to provide proof of the qualifications and professionalism of its workforce to current and potential clients, and the Engineering Services SKILLcard goes a very long way towards fulfilling this requirement.’

Registration with Engineering Services SKILLcard becomes much more stringent after the end of September 2005, and employers are advised to register their workforce ahead of this deadline.
