A memorable milestone for the Energy Training Foundation (EnTF) as 2016 marked the launch of the first training event at the EnTF’s own premises. Early in 2016, the EnTF secured a training facility in Persequor Technopark in Lynnwood, Pretoria where all future Gauteng-based training will be hosted.
Training Manager, Izelle Bosman who has her Masters in Mechanical Engineering and holds the prestigious Association of Energy Engineers (AEE) qualifications of Certified Energy Manager (CEM) is very excited about the prospects that the new facility holds to enable the strategic vision of the EnTF to be fulfilled. “Training in hotels has always been run-of-the-mill for us, but having our own facility is a privilege which we are embracing, however a lot of hard work has gone into the preparations to make it the success we are aiming for”, commented Bosman. The EnTF is expanding its range of training courses to include a major focus on developing candidates that are not eligible yet for AEE qualifications towards becoming skilled and market-ready so that they can achieve the distinguished status offered by the AEE, in addition an expansion into the renewable energy training market is being pursued due to popular demand.
The facility is easily accessible, with ample and safe parking facilities, seating up to 36 persons comfortably for training and the challenging AEE Examinations. Bosman continued, “We aim to have the same service levels as what was experienced at the hotel venues, if not better due to there being more flexibility in last minute changes and requirements.”
The EnTF has the longest standing track record as an energy training provider in Southern Africa sharing knowledge for over 14 years. EnTF is a EWSETA accredited training provider, all courses carry CPD credits for ECSA requirements, and new courses are in application process. Besides being a training provider for the South African Association for Energy Efficiency (SAEE), EnTF is the sole training provider of the AEE in the Southern African region.
