Nominations are now open for the IOR RACHP EngTech Lifetime Achievement Award. This accolade, sponsored by ACR Journal, is designed to recognise the contribution made by those who have spent a career as a service, installation or maintenance engineer working on any air conditioning, refrigeration, or heat pump equipment. These dedicated professionals keep systems running efficiently and give back to the industry by generously sharing their knowledge and encouraging the next generation of engineers.

Employers, clients, and colleagues are all invited to submit nominations for worthy candidates who must possess at least 15 years of experience in a technician-level capacity and still be actively engaged in the industry. Shortlisted contenders will be invited to take part in a phone interview to discuss their professional journey and expertise. 

The winner will be announced at the IOR Annual Dinner on 22 February in London and will receive a £400 prize, an engraved trophy, and an official certificate

The deadline for nominations is set for 1 November 2023. Download the nomination form the website.
