Coupled to the training is an opportunity for senior people in industry who may be interested to share their experience with the younger generation. Or possibly just a passion to become involved in training and offer their expertise and experience in these evening classes.

The courses are aimed at the gap that exists between the artisan / technician level and engineers. Should you be interested in taking up the challenge and be involved with the presentation of any of the courses please contact Mariet Pieterse - 0827721694 / In order to bring some of the vast experience out in industry back into training, Sairac is on the look out for senior members of industry to present SAIRAC courses.
