In order to bring some of the vast experience out in industry back into training, SAIRAC is on the lookout for senior members of industry to present SAIRAC courses. The courses are aimed at the gap that exists between the artisan / technician level and engineers.

The skills gap found in industry is well known and much talked about. Coupled to the training is an opportunity for senior people in industry who may be interested to share their experience with the younger generation, or possibly just a passion to become involved in training and offer their expertise and experience in these evening classes.
