Employers attending the second CTC Open day for 2018 at the Colliery Training College (CTC) on the 4 November 2018 will have an opportunity to learn more about the training of artisans aligned with the fourth industrial revolution already seen in the mining industry, for example autonomous Haulage Systems (AHS) that allow the unmanned operation of mining equipment have already been tested successfully on local coal mines.
It is said that the first person to reach the age of 200 is already born; it is expected that she will be totally re-trained at least four times during her life time – if she chooses to be an artisan, her training will look much different from that currently prescribed by the authorities.
The CTC college, now in its 54th year of existence, offers SETA aligned training to mining and most industrial sectors, and its core objective is to provide training for artisans in the mining, metals, engineering and related sectors and also to collaborate with employers, product developers and other stakeholders in a search for sustainable training solutions to prepare artisans for the fourth industrial revolution.
The managing director of CTC, Mr Johan Venter said the said the Open day will afford employers an invaluable opportunity to get information from the MQA and Merseta on artisan training grants that will be available.
At this Open day, CTC wishes to showcase their state-of-the-art training facilities. The CTC Training Centre offers accommodation to the artisans attending the course, making them one of the preferred training centers for employers. “Five training vouchers that will afford employers the opportunity to send learners for a full artisan trade at CTC will be up for grabs in our Open Day for Employers Lucky Draw” says Venter.
