Schneider Electric, the global specialist in energy management and automation, has partnered with the Sedibeng College to launch the second French South African Schneider Electric Education Centre (FSASEC) in the Vaal.
The launch forms part of three more French South African Schneider Electric Education Centres (FSASECs) which Schneider Electric has established in conjunction with the Schneider Electric Foundation, the French Ministry of Education, Higher Education and Research.The primary objective for the establishment of these centres is to bridge the gap between industry and vocational training in the fields of energy.The French South African Schneider Electric Education Centres focus on training previously disadvantaged young South Africans to become artisans, electricians and technicians in the field of energy, using Schneider Electric’s latest cutting-edge technology offerings and equipment.The launch of this centre forms part of Schneider Electric’s partnership agreements that were signed in March 2016 with several other key institutions of Higher Education, for the establishment of more FSASECs throughout the country.
