Train to Become a QET, [Qualified Electrical Trader] An EMDA proposal to initiate a feasibility study into the establishment of a specialist training body has been accepted under the Enterprise Ireland REISS Scheme (Regional Enterprise Innovation Scoping Scheme). The proposal identifies training needs for individuals engaged in the purchase and/or sale of electrical materials and equipment. Traders will not specify products or systems; They will be trained to select and source product to meet required specifications. The application involved an extensive examination of EMDA activities and capabilities. We are pleased to be among four successful applications in the Dublin region. Nationwide many of the successful applications came from Universities so we can consider ourselves in good company. 10 ELECTRIC.IE • The Magazine & Website for the Irish Electrical Industry • HEPA Filter 0203 564 9164 – sales@atc.ie – atcelec.co.uk ATC Tiger ECO High Speed Hand Dryer Ultra Modern Design Ecosun Low Temp Ceiling Heaters ATC Pacific Unvented Water Heaters For Wash Stations ATC Dahlia Hand Santiser Station Wash—Dry—Sanitise • Automatic No Touch Operation • Hygienic • 36,000 Operation Battery Life • Battery Powered: 6 x AA batteries • Wall mounted in Minutes • Free Standing Station • No Power Required • Sturdy yet Portable • Adjustable Heights • For use with Dahlia Hand Sanitiser Dispenser • Hygienic No Touch Operation • Dries hands in 15 Seconds • Low Energy (550/1200W) • Super Silent—70dB @ 1m • Optional HEPA Filter – removes 99.97% of bacteria particles • Two panel sizes 600mm x 600mm and 1200mm x 600mm • Energy efficient low energy costs • Draught and Noise free • Ceiling mounting allows flexible use of floor and wall space • Designed for quick and easy installation to suspended ceilings • 3 Sizes: 5, 10, 14 Litres • ERP Rated B • New Safety Valve • Glass lined tank • External adjustable • Thermostat control • Quick recovery element • Wall & Floor Mounted ATC Dahlia Hand Santiser Dispenser Wash—Dry—Sanitise Wash – Dry – Sanitise Restaurants Schools Sports Facilities Universities Stadia Hotels Experience Unique • Soap Dispenser • Automation Water Tap • High Speed Hand Dryer ATC Eco Tap Wash Room System 29ui!OPWFNCFS!3133 SPbSJOH!31t!Cbmm Intercontinental Hotel - Dublin TO BOOK YOUR TABLE CONTACT A COMMITTEE MEMBER www.irisheba.ie • Drinks Reception • Four Course Dinner • Dancing Until Late • Table of 10 €2,000 • Discount Hotel Room Rate • Prizes Galore Industry legends at the AECI Trade Show.
