All three candidates started this year at the SAJ Competency Training Centrehttps://www.saj.co.za/ in Wadeville, a fully MERSETA accredited facility, where they will undergo training in the Electrical Engineering field for a total of 120 days.

Once they have successfully completed all the prescribed modules, they will be given the opportunity to gain 18 months of on the job training under strict supervision at the JB Switchgear workshop in Brakpan.

When this phase of the training is completed, they will undertake a two-day trade test readiness assessment at SAJ. Should any gaps in their training be identified these will be filled by supplementary training after which a trade test date will be set.

The main objective of this process is for the candidates to obtain a trade test qualification which will ensure they have good career prospects in the industry, and a bright future going forward.

The company’s aim is to add value to the economy by producing adequately qualified artisans who will give valuable input into any organisation in the future.
