Last week AIRAH held its annual SA Apprentice Awards to recognise up-and-coming professionals in South Australia’s HVAC&R sector.
Ben Winter of Airmaster took out the top award. A fourth-year apprentice, Winter joined Airmaster in 2016 and assists in the maintenance operations at the Myer Centre in Adelaide’s Rundle Mall precinct.
ActronAir was the major sponsor of the night and provided a split system unit as a lucky door prize. Airefrig and Climat Commercial also provided sponsorship, and Air Diffusion and CPS donated tool vouchers as part of the prize packages. Andrew Downs from SAGE Automation appeared as a guest speaker.
The winners were:
Apprentice of the Year Ben Winter (Airmaster)
Runner-Up Apprentice of the Year Jacob Adkin (Applied Air Conditioning)
Encouragement Award Dylan Biggins (Retail FM Woolworths)
Airefrig Scholarship Award Josh Aquaro (Adelaide Commercial Refrigeration Services)
