Training is for everyone.....
The SAIDSA Technical Training Courses consist of a number of short skills programmes designed to upgrade the skills of current technicians as well as new technicians coming into the industry.
The courses can be completed in the classroom or Online.
Each individual course carries a certificate of "Competency" which is recognised by SAIDSA and by the industry as Bona-fide training.
Classroom Training is carried out at the SAIDSA training centre in Benoni and courses are also held at the coastal regions at designated dates. All courses are generic i.e. NO Product brands are mentioned or taught. Written and practical exams must be completed and candidates are required to attain a minimum pass rate in order to be deemed competent.
