- Telecommunications (Telkom, MTN, Vodacom)
- Chemical Industries
- Motor Manufacturing/Automotive Industries
- Aeronautical/Aerospace Industry
This qualification can assist with the achievement of national government and industrial development policies and strategies to grow a pool of scares and other related skills in support of sustainable economic growth.
People working in the electrical engineering fields require specialised technical skills and knowledge in order to meet the requirements of continually changing environment of the various industries…
This qualification is designed to meet the needs of learners within the electrical Engineering Sectors who require technical expertise and essential knowledge needed to earn formal qualifications.
The qualification facilitates access for previously disadvantaged groups and other learners to acquire the technical knowledge and skills that are required as well as providing access and mobility into higher level more specialised occupations. This then allows learners greater employability and support to the development of small and medium enterprises (SME)
