Registered Skills Programmes

Boilermaking

Whether you want to improve the efficiency of your workforce or yourself, progress with the goal of acquiring a full qualification, or develop skills required for specific applications, one of our Registered Boilermaking Skills Programmes might be your answer. 

The need for repair, maintenance, and installation of steel structures, pressure vessels, and sheet metal work is ever-increasing, and boiler making is foreseen to form a vital part of the industry far into the future. Our Boilermaking Skills Programmes are developed to improve specific skills relevant to the current work environment.

During our skills programmes, it is a top priority to instil work safety habits and continuous cognisance of hazard identification, to ensure not only compliance to regulation and conformance to best practice but also create a work culture of no compromise in Health and Safety.
