Boost for training in SA coatings industry

Training in the South African coatings industry has received a major boost through new access to over 65 training modules of the British Coatings Federation (BCF). All the training modules are sanctioned by the internationally-respected training body, City and Guilds of London. The BCF decision to allow its training modules to be introduced in South Africa follows a visit to the UK by Deryck Spence, executive director of the South African Paint Manufacturing Association (SAPMA). His negotiations with BCF will now lead to the first formal Articles of Association being drawn up between BCF and SAPMA.

New coatings training centre set to open mid-year

The South African Paint Manufacturing Association’s (SAPMA’s) new Centre of Excellence training centre is set to open around the middle of this year. The Centre of Excellence will operate from the old Bifsa Training Centre in Springs on the East Rand, once the revamp and modification of the premises is complete. The opening of the training centre follows the accreditation of SAPMA’s training programmes last year by the Chemical Industries Education and Training Authority (CHIETA).

CHIETA accreditation for coatings sector training

Government accreditation for skills training for the coatings industry, as provided by the South African Paint Industry Training Institute (SAPITI), has been approved. This was announced at the recent annual general meeting of the South African Paint Manufacturing Association (SAPMA) by Stuurman Aphane, quality assurance manager for the Chemical Industries Education and Training Authority (CHIETA).  Aphane said that CHIETA had decided to grant accreditation to SAPITI and that processes were already under way to award work skills programme and discretionary grants to the institute. “CHIETA will also ensure that we have the necessary staff to deal with this new accreditation,” Aphane pledged.

Accreditation is vital for coatings sector training

SAPMA, the South African Paint Manufacturing Association, has trained over 6 000 employees in the coatings industry over the past 20 years through its training arm – the SA Paint Industry Training Institute (SAPITI). However, Deryck Spence, executive director of the association, has warned that the lack of government accredited training has become a major threat to the future of the coatings industry.  Spence says there is a critical shortage of skills in the industry. “The pool of resources is shrinking and is simply not sustainable in the long term. There is apathy towards the training provided by SAPITI because of the lack of accreditation from the Chemical Industries Education and Training Authority (CHIETA). SAPMA members all subscribe to government’s training levy but do not receive refunds or BBBEE points for non-accredited courses, despite the fact that the government offers no alternative training for the industry,” he says.
