There will also be training classrooms designated to various OESAA members, which will give attendees a front-row seat to the latest news in technology, diagnosis, and replacement.

Furthermore, visitors will have the chance to go home with some fantastic prizes – including some of the latest video consoles! – while there will be ample food and refreshments on offer throughout the evening.

Dedicated to the next generation

On Thursday morning, OESAA members will return to the respective college to deliver tailored sessions to students. These masterclasses will be ideal preparation for the apprentices, as they proceed with their studies and look to forge a career in the industry.

OESAA Chairman, Nigel Morgan, said: “After three successive OESAA Academy Live events rolled out at the start of the year, we’re delighted to return with two new dates, locations, and an adapted format.

“I know both colleges are excited at the prospect of welcoming our members and technicians to their facilities, and I am confident our trade evening will inspire the audience.”

On meeting the students, Nigel added: “The student days have been invaluable to us; the energy and passion shown, as well as the apprentices’ existing knowledge, was encouraging. It demonstrated that there is a genuine appetite to learn and create a career in this fantastic trade.”
