During the week of 16-20 May 2022, the French South African Schneider Electric Education Centre (F’SASEC) and the Vaal University of Technology (VUT)’s Science Park held its first domestic training for VUT Science Park students since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020.
F’SASEC is well known for its empowering training workshops in domestic and industrial installations.
The sessions were hosted by F’SASEC Facilitator: Mr Potego Morwamotshe.
The train-the-trainer programme aims to eradicate unemployment and empower participants with entrepreneurial skills.
Standard fault-finding methods are deemed time-consuming and may slow down production or, even worse, stop it. Over the years, there has been a rapid advance in electrical technology. “The Training offers Domestic Wiring and its Operations which prepares the student for their Electrical trade including the construction of pipes, circuit diagram designing, fault finding, trace and locate,” said Mr Morwamotshe. He further alluded that the candidates are offered an occupational certificate once they have completed training.
Morwamotshe further mentioned that there is no short-cut method of training an electrician to detect, locate and repair. Also, an electrician needs to develop the ability to diagnose faults systematically and logically.
Mr Goodman Mongwe, a VUT Science Park student, said: “I will make sure my acquaintances know about this training workshop. I appreciate how the facilitator prepared for this training, and I deem it professional and understandable.”
The workshop is open to all members of the Mavuti family. For more information, please call 0169509061
