HALL 2 STAND 358 GQA & The FIT Show Master Fitter Challenge 2013 When the FIT Show organisers searched for a partner that had the qualifications, resources and commitment to run the Master Fitter Challenge, a process that took six months, they were delighted that search found GQA at the end of it. The Master Fitter Challenge (in association with FENSA) will be one of the centrepiece events of The FIT Show where eight of the country’s best fitting teams will go head-to-head live at the International Centre Telford (ICT) to win big cash prizes, and most prestigiously of all; the title of Master Fitter Challenge Winner. Head of the judging panel and manager of the event is Sean Hayes, Technical Officer/External Verifier at GQA Qualifications – the long standing awarding organisation who have specialised in glass qualifications for over 20 years and focus on training window installers. Sean has been associated with the glass industry for over 30 years and has previous judging experience after being heavily involved in the past three UK Masterfitter Competitions so there is no better person to cast a criICTal eye over the efforts of the competitors. Applicants are currently being assessed by Sean and his team and we caught up with him for a quick chat: How is the competition shaping up?
