About Us

We are a practical training centre that focuses strongly on employment skilled training in the Building trades for Plumbing, Painters, Bricklayers and Plasterers.
We equip the students with essential skills in a workshop environment to improve their skills to do their Trade Tests successfully at Indlela Olifantsfontein.

Our students will be an asset for their company, as they will be trained in the trade requirements as set down by the Department of Labour. Their skills will be standardized through the implementation of innovative, unique training programs.
There is a big demand for skilled artisans in the Building Trades, and candidates can enter the market as self-employed artisans when they have passed their Trade Tests.

The CEO of the Company is Kiewiet du Toit. Kiewiet started his career in the Building Industry as an apprentice Plumber in 1970. He completed his trade, and obtained his National Diploma (Civil) part time. He joined the Olifantsfontein Trade Test Centre in 1976, and through working through the ranks, he left INDLELA in 2003 in his capacity of Chief Building Trade Division. He started a Construction Company, which is still running successfully. He has dedicated himself to imparting the many years of experience and knowledge gained in the Building Industry by opening a training centre to address the shortage of skilled tradesman.
