The courses presented at Northlink College are career-orientated to bridge the gap between the workshop and the world of work with the least disruption at the end of the training period. Students who attend the simulated training are expected to wear the required safety attire (Helmet, Safety Shoes and an overall) at all times. The Competency Based Modular Training (CBMT) is the first stage in your career path that will allow the student to attain artisan status by successfully completing a trade test, after the prescribed work-based (on-site) experience.
There continues to be a need for qualified artisans to support and grow the economy of South Africa. Although artisan occupations are primarily focused on hand skills and practical ability, they are supported by a substantial amount of general or vocational or fundamental knowledge learnt at a College for Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET College). A career in Engineering, such as a Mechanical Fitter and Turner, is very demanding. It will be expected from you to work long hours and also on week-ends and public holidays to meet the demand and targets as set by the employer. As a reward the salaries of qualified artisans compare favourable to other careers. There is also the opportunity to start your own business.
