DipCAM for Thorite man

26 October, 2018

When Andy Taylor joined Thorite ten years ago as the North-West service engineer, he had completed his apprenticeship some time previously and thought, not unreasonably, that his exam-sitting days were behind him. How wrong can you be because there are further qualifications that engineering staff can work towards, such as the Diploma in Compressed Air Management – DipCAM – which he has just passed.


For Taylor, who is directly involved with the installation of compressed air products, the DipCAM qualification has already had real benefits: “Even though I have been a service engineer for quite a while, I was surprised at how much I learnt while preparing for the exams,” he said. “It really made me look at the latest products and the way that those products can be best utilised and installed so that ultimately, I can provide customers with a system that performs as it should and is straightforward to maintain. While it took six fairly intensive months to complete and pass the course, it was time well spent because it forced me to focus on how best to do my job.”

To date more than ten members of Thorite staff have achieved a Diploma of Compressed Air Management. The course is overseen by the British Compressed Air Society.
