Home Business Management Education & Training New accredited training programmes and webinars

BOSCH Ulwazi has been endorsed by the Engineering Council of South Africa (ECSA) as its first Certified Training Academy.

“This ECSA initiative was a direct response to stakeholders’ concerns, to rectify the lack of support regarding development of engineering practitioners, extending from the graduate stage to full professional registration,” said Managing Director Balan Govender.

He added that their Engineer-in-Training (EIT) programme was developed 12 years ago to provide opportunities for candidates to enhance their practical engineering competency to meet the Engineering Council of South Africa’s (ECSA’s) requirements for professional registration.

“The company’s EIT programme, which runs over a three-year period from graduation, provides graduates with relevant and applicable work experience, together with mentorship, for them to meet the requirements for registration and to achieve their professional status with ECSA,” he said.

Although the curriculum focuses on the development of graduate engineers and project managers, the course content can be re-modelled for graduates in other disciplines, including human resources, quantity surveyors and financial graduates.

The EIT programme currently covers six phases – orientation, site exposure, design, project management, knowledge of other disciplines and applicable legislation.

Bosch Ulwazi has had 14 EIT’s register as professionals with the ECSA and has assisted 10 senior engineers within the Group, to complete their registrations with ECSA for professional status, as mature applicants.

All training programmes can be run at the company’s regional offices, clients’ offices (dependent on numbers), conference facilities, as well as online via Microsoft teams.

Bosch Ulwazi is part of the Bosch Holdings group of multi-disciplinary consulting engineering companies.
