CAE 

The first Certificate in Automation Engineering class started against all odds on the 29th of June, 2020. One of the measures we put in place was to ensure that our numbers of trainees were reduced from our standard class size of 10 to 5 to ensure social distancing. Personal Protective Equipment in the form of nose masks and hand gloves were made available to trainees to ensure hygiene in tandem to this hand sanitizers were also made available as well. So far we have been able to deliver a successful and hitch free training to our participants who have enjoyed every bit of the ride. Our next batch of CAE starts on the 7th of September, 2020. Registrations are open and on-going and just as this batch we are trimming it to a maximum of 5.

E-LEARNING & WEBINARS 

We now offer some of our Automation courses via eLearning platforms in collaboration with one of our learning partners, Rockwell. We are also on the verge of delivering ETAP and some of our Siemens Power Academy courses via webinars.

IN-CLASS TRAINING vs ONLINE TRAINING  

The virus is here. A global pandemic that has affected schools home and abroad. Educators have been forced into more creative ways of deploying learning solutions and interventions and if you weren’t thinking digital then you probably weren’t thinking critically enough. Surprisingly, we have still noticed a couple of clients still have a preference for in-class, instructor-led delivery of training. As much as digitized learning is clearly the future of learning, at this side of the world, a couple of us would only be willing to pay for training delivered in class. I guess there really is no substitute for gold old human interaction via face to face contact.
