ECA (SA) PLANNING TO REGISTER A TVET COLLEGE
MARK MFIKOE – ECA (SA) NATIONAL DIRECTOR
The ECA (SA) emerged from a Strategic Conference with a firm commitment to establish a Technical Vocational Education and Training College to service primarily the electrical contracting business environment. We believe firmly that South Africa needs a workforce in all the listed scarce skills areas, which includes electrical skills, to meet the requirements of business going forward. “Meeting the requirements” must include training for the specific requirements of business, not some generic and hopeful training to make an employee generally skilled. We seek to train and develop skilled workforce ready to hit the ground running, whose qualifications enjoy prominence anywhere in South Africa primarily and the world generally.
