PRACTICAL SKILLS COURSES

The College offers practical training courses that are accredited by the SETAs such as the merSETA and CHIETA. Each practical course is modular or unit standard-based and are designed to support the apprentice or learnership programmes and artisans that need to improve on their skills. The courses prepare the student for the world of work, thus increasing the student’s employment opportunities.
