Mode of Training - MODE OF TRAINING Institutional Based Training
Trainees cover modules which do not require industrial experience. These are the ones the institution has capacity to handle. The trainees are also exposed to all underpinning theories and fundamental modules at that particular level or qualification.
Industrial Based Training
This training covers modules which are industrial in nature. Trainees are attached to an employer who assigns them to a competent and skilled trainer. Although the trainee is undergoing training, the employer is obliged to pay the trainee a minimum wage as prescribed by the wages advisory council from time to time. After industrial training, trainees may be recalled to college to learn some more theory in preparation for the next level of certificate. This is referred to as block release.
Duration of training
The Apprenticeship scheme is a four year training program punctuated by certification at every stage of achievement.
