CEF, UK supplier of electrical products and services, are hosting their 2nd CEF Live event at the NEC, Birmingham on the 8th and 9th June 2017 for their contractor customers.

During the event, Prysmian Group a world leader in the industry of high-technology cables and systems for energy and telecommunications, will be there to promote its standard cable, as used by every day contractors and to demonstrate its easy stripping characteristics.

Win a prize!
As part of a ‘Skills Challenge’, which will take place on both days of the event, Prysmian will be running a competition where contractors are invited to carry out a typical procedure that involves cable stripping, for example wiring a socket.

How are Trade Skills 4U involved?
Prysmian wanted to ensure that best practice in terms of technique and tools are used to ensure the appropriate health and safety precautions are adhered to. Therefore, they needed to find an electrical representative from the industry to oversee the competition.

Their first thought was to contact Trade Skills 4U, the UK’s premier electrical training company, who have agreed to support the event by having one of their experienced tutors, Mark Longley there. Mark will be on hand to demonstrate the correct technique for the challenge and will be timed while carrying out the procedure, so that competition entrants have a time to beat.

Each entrant will then be timed and the results will be posted on a leader board, with prizes being given to the winners.

Mark Longley said, “I’ll be setting the benchmark for the time to beat, so no pressure there! I’m really looking forward to the challenge, it’ll be interesting to see the different techniques used and who’s going to be the fastest. There are some great prizes to be won, so make sure you come along to Stand 37 and have a go.”

With over 45 leading suppliers already confirmed, the event is set to be even bigger than last year. By attending the event you will get to meet industry leading brands, see the latest products and technology, attend knowledge seminars with a preview to the 18th edition regulations, get involved in skills challenges, find out about apprenticeships and grab some on-the-day discounts and special offers.
