Coega's Building Inspector Training Programme gains momentum

JULY 8, 2015

Thantaswa Loqo (front) and Mhlangabezi Banya are two of the 12 candidates participating in the Building Inspector Training Programme, conducted by the Coega Development Corporation (CDC).

The programme continues to gain momentum as the 12 trainees participate in a 10-day painting and decorating workshop at Coega’s Human Capital Solutions centre (HCS). 

The practical training includes basic colour theory, repainting of plastered surfaces and repainting of wood surfaces under the tutorship of a seasoned facilitator and assessor.

This will be followed by a programme on plastering and tiling and will conclude with additional painting and decorating. The Building Inspector Training Programme, launched in April this year, is set to run for a period of 18 months with up to eight months of practical training and the balance for mentorship.
