Apprentice Installer Awards


The BSIA's Apprentice Installer Awards recognise the 'new blood' of the industry as apprentice installers are rewarded for their talent and customer service. Presented at the BSIA's Annual Luncheon, held at the London Hilton on Park Lane in July, the awards are open to apprentice installers from security companies certified for their activities by a UKAS accredited certification body.  Apprentices are eligible if they are involved in the installation of alarms, access control, or CCTV. The scheme is designed for third year and particularly outstanding second year apprentices. Individuals can also be nominated by the college where they are studying.

2014's Apprentice Installer Awards were kindly sponsored by Pyronix.

Should you have any queries, do not hesitate to contact the BSIA's Events Manager, Christine Brooks, on 0845 389 0743 or via email if you have any queries.

Darrell Gilmour, 19, of Kings Security Systems


The overall winner of this year’s Apprentice Installer Awards is Darrell Gilmour, 19, of Kings Security Systems. In his third year of studies, Darrell’s passion for security runs in the family, with his father, uncle and aunt also employed within the sector. He was nominated for this award by New College, North Lanarkshire, where his methodical, conscientious workmanship has impressed his lecturers. 

Meanwhile, working full-time at Kings Security Systems Ltd, Darrell has set the bar high for future apprentices, with a spokesperson from the business commenting: “Kings are taking on new apprentices, and Darrell will be an ambassador for Scotland in providing a role model for the new recruits. He is an asset to Kings and a valued apprentice to the business.” 

Darrell is pictured receiving his award from Tony Porter QPM LLB, Surveillance Camera Commissioner, at the BSIA's Annual Lunch on 16th July 2014.
