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.

- 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.
