    The primary purpose of the Electrical Department is to enrich the knowledge and skills of learners, apprentices and the community at large in the field of Electrical Engineering.

    In doing so, we facilitate various qualifications, courses and skills programs that are registered with ESETA, MERSETA and CHIETA. The courses we present are Modular or Unit Standard based and include a considerable portion of practical application or experiential training. Competence is measured through proven and successfully passing assessments, methods and practical evaluations.

    APPRENTICESHIPS

    The range of courses offered are approximately a year in duration for each level. The learner would complete an initial three to four months at ETC before going to a host employer where they would practically apply what they have learned. At the end of the year the learner returns to ETC for their assessment and evaluation, done by an independent moderator. If judged competent, the learner may then progress to the next higher level.

    MECHANICAL ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT

    MECHANICAL ENGINEERING AND WELDING DEPARTMENTS

    ETC has the resources to train in a very wide range of mechanical skills, developing both young minds as well as old hands, providing both with a diversity of skills and techniques to fabricate, repair and maintain anything related to the mechanical field.
    This Department currently presents the accredited Manufacturing Engineering and Related Services Sector Education and Training Authority (MERSETA) legacy Apprenticeships and Learnerships.

    Non accredited training is presented at the same quality level as that of accredited training.

    Most of this training is in the welding field designed from DIY to industry required standards.

     ACCREDITED COURSES

    APPRENTICESHIPS

    The range and duration of modular courses offered range from 1 day up to 3 months with a combination of numerous modules.

    A 3 year apprenticeship requires on average a 3 month institutionalised modular training period at ETC (min Phases 1-3), thereafter a 3 month training period at a technical college (min 4 subject NTC 2 in the relative trade) and thereafter a 3 month on the job exposure in the technical field at a selected company (minimum 80 weeks).

    After completing the 3 years and the minimum requirements one can apply for a trade test.

    One does not have to complete a full phase at a time, modules may be selected from within each phase and be completed according to a training calendar drawn up by the department head.

     

    Recognition of prior learning is also able to be established on request.

    LEARNERSHIPS

    The range of courses offered are approximately a year in duration for each level. The learner would complete an initial three to four months at ETC before going to a host employer where they would practically apply what they have learned. At the end of the year the learner returns to ETC for their assessment and evaluation, done by an independent moderator. If judged competent, the learner may then progress to the next higher level.

     

    Generally, Learnerships at the lower level average around 20 to 24 individual registered unit standards. Any one, or any combination or group of specific unit standards can be offered to individuals or industry to suit particular requirements.

    There are 2 challenges when considering unit standard training is that it requires a group of at least 8 learners and a host company is to be secured prior to enrolment with merSETA.

    TECHNICAL WELDING

     

    We do offer non accredited welder courses as they have been designed from DIY to industry lead requirements

    Although not accredited the same level of quality to that of accredited training is delivered.

    Often accredited and non-accredited courses are given at the same time to a group as the quality of training and training techniques are identical.

    Non accredited welder courses have been designed from DIY to industry lead requirements.

     

    This Table below will assist you in identifying various weld positions in the courses presented on the next few pages.

    LEARNERSHIPS

     

    The range of courses offered are approximately a year in duration for each level.

    The learner would complete an initial three to four months at ETC before going to a host employer where they would practically apply what they have learned.

    At the end of the year the learner returns to ETC for their assessment and evaluation, done by an independent moderator.

    If judged competent, the learner may then progress to the next higher level.

     

    Generally, Learnerships at the lower level average around 20 to 24 individual registered unit standards.

    Any one, or any combination or group of specific unit standards can be offered to individuals or industry to suit particular requirements.

    There are 2 challenges when considering unit standard training is that it requires a group of at least 8 learners and a host company is to be secured prior to enrolment with MERSETA.
