Gibela training centre
A 4 000m2 accredited training centre within the precincts of Gibela’s new factory at Dunnottar is scheduled for completion in October this year and is expected to admit its first students in January 2017. Artisanships and technical, management and leadership training will be key components of the centre’s syllabus. Training in portable skills will be an important focus.
Accreditation will be through the Transport Education Training Authority (TETA) and the Sector Education and Training Authority.
While Gibela, PRASA and supplier staff training will be prioritized initially, the vision is that the centre will also train people from surrounding communities, equipping the to pursue careers in the rail, rail-related and other industrial sectors nationwide.
"Significant training will take place at Gibela's manufacturing plant, which means that South Africans will benefit from world-class skills within the rail industry."
Dr Popo Molefe, PRASA Chairman
