Apprentice summer schools

Designed specifically for hospital engineering apprentices, Eastwood Park's apprentice summer school covers five days* of residential training, developed in collaboration with a number of hospital trusts.

  • Electrical safety testing for medical equipment (in accordance with IEC60601 & IEC62353)
  • The purpose of ventilation and critical ventilation systems in healthcare (HTM 03)
  • Water hygiene – fundamental knowledge of Legionella (HTM04)
  • Decontamination & sterilization equipment – an overview of engineering service

The courses start at 10:00am on Monday and finish at 13:00pm on Friday.

Accreditation is from City & Guilds. 

  • Training takes place in a simulated hospital setting
