The Fairmont Southampton has welcomed engineering student Jamel David Minors back to their Maintenance Department for the summer.

During this 2 year program, Mr. Minors obtains work experience while studying the principles and practices of power plant systems, energy management and conservation, safety and economics as well as supervision of personnel in the classroom.

Regional Director for Human Resources Nelda Simons said, “We are pleased to partner with the National Training Board on this outstanding initiative with such an impressive young man and we welcome the opportunity to help a talented, dedicated Bermudian to achieve his potential.”

“At the end of his training Bermuda will have a more highly skilled Bermudian Engineer and Fairmont Southampton will have gained a phenomenal new colleague here at the Fairmont Southampton.”

At the conclusion of his studies Jamel Minors will have obtained a 2nd Class Power Engineer Certification at the Technical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSAD) Level.

He has previously earned his Fourth Class Power Engineers Certificate through this program. Fairmont Southampton covers accommodation, meals, health insurance and safety equipment for the duration of the program as well as summer employment for Mr. Minors.

    Congratulations to the young brother….just hope that he does move forward after the 2 years he “owes” Fairmont. He can be a world class engineer instead of being stuck in a dead end job within Bermuda’s hospitality industry.
