About the role – apprentice

Thermodial engineers inspect a chiller

Electrical, plumbing and refrigeration and air conditioning apprentices are currently being recruited by Thermodial.

This apprentice video series will display more about the role of a Thermodial apprentice.

Across the four videos in the series, Thermodial apprentices show how they assist service engineers in testing and checking electrical, plumbing, air conditioning, BEMS (building energy management systems) and HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) systems.

All four apprentices will go on to become HVAC service engineers, once their apprenticeships have been completed. Additional training in areas of gas safety and F-Gas, will be provided by Thermodial, enabling each apprentice to reach their full potential.

While in training, apprentices will blend on-the-job shadowing and learning from HVAC Service Engineers, with off-the-job college phases, as dictated by Solas (state education agency). Apprentices will also be regularly mentored and supported by Thermodial’s Apprentice Supervisor, to ensure each apprentice is progressing, learning and growing in the role.
