TRAINING: IFTA Invests R3 Million in Two New Trades

 





Recent Gauteng Business News

Ikhaya Fundisa Techniskills Academy (Pty) Ltd (IFTA), the black-owned artisan training company, has announced it is to spend R3 million to establish a training course for the rigging and instrumentation trades – adding to its existing offers that include fitters and turners, tool jig and dye makers, electricians, millwrights, welders, boilermakers, sheet metal workers, petrol and diesel mechanics, tractor mechanics, forklift mechanics, auto electricians and earth moving equipment mechanics.

Sean Jones, a director of IFTA, said the investment in these two new trades was “justified” as it will enable the company to broaden it service offerings to its existing client base, including mines and other heavy industry-focused groups.

He said the R3 million investment will be funded from cash flow, adding that the two new trades will “come on line” on 1 September.

IFTA also recently announced that it is now an official level 1 BEE contributor, making it arguably the only privately owned training institution to make this rating. This, according to Jones, “translates into enormous benefits for our customers as we are a value added supplier and a Category A beneficiary in terms of the BEE Act.”
