Please take note of the following Training and Mentoring Opportunity for all CIDB Level 3 – 5 GB/CE Contractors:

The Department of Transport and Public Works as part of their EPWP Contractor Development Programme will now recruit candidates/contractors for our 16-month Mentoring and Training Programme, scheduled to start in October 2021 until January 2023.  Find attached an application form if you are interested to apply. We will draw up a long list of candidates from the application forms and continue to shortlist the final candidates after we have received sufficient responses.

The Programme includes a four-week compulsory training  that will focus on “Construction Management and Planning” a 5-day block week per month. The training will be accredited, and all candidates will be assigned a Mentor. The task of the Mentor will be to help the Contractor incorporate everything they have learned into the business.

NB* you must be willing and available to spend one week per month away from your family or business at the training venue for the duration of the 4 week/month training.

The training will be held at one central venue and the Department will provide accommodation for those who are chosen for the programme.  We will confirm the details of the venue and final schedule to qualified contractors in due time.

The contractors must however arrange their own transport to and from the venue. If the contractor doesn’t want to make use of the accommodation and catering provided, then they must find their own alternative at their own cost.
