Max Wheeler, an apprentice with Chubb Fire & Security from Coventry, has won an Apprentice Installer Award from the British Security Industry Association (BSIA).
Wheeler was one of three young apprentices from the UK’s private security industry who were presented with national awards in recognition of their academic and practical success in the field of electronic security installations. Awarded by the BSIA, the trade body representing the UK’s private security sector, the Apprentice Installer Awards recognise the achievements of level two and level three apprentices involved in the installation of alarms, closed circuit television, access control or a combination of these systems. Their achievements represent the commitment of security companies and training bodies in providing young talent with the opportunity to succeed in the security industry.
“Max has been commended for continually showing a willingness to stretch himself, to gain a new knowledge and to reach his goals early,” the BSIA said in a news release. “He has already made himself an extremely valuable member of the team at Chubb Fire & Security and he has received regular praise from all of the staff that he has worked with, many of whom request Max’s attendance on their jobs.”
Wheeler, 21, works out of Chubb’s Coventry office and was nominated for an award by Chubb’s apprenticeship programme manager, Jim McSharry. He has already successfully completed all of his level two field assessments and is on track to start his level three tests.
“I am incredibly proud to have won this BSIA award, particularly being recognised by my seniors at Chubb,” said Wheeler. “To know that others appreciate my efforts here at Chubb is great, and I look forward to the next and final year of my apprenticeship.”
Wheeler and the two runners-up were all presented with their awards at the BSIA’s annual luncheon, hosted at the London Hilton on Park Lane.
