a.b.e.-Commitment-to-Skills-Upgrading

Pictured at the Chem OPS Level 1 graduation ceremony at the a.b.e. Construction Chemicals’ Training Centre were (from left):  Judy Shaik, Branch Manager, Institute for Quality Education Training and Development; a.b.e. graduates Jabulani Dlamini, and Mapule Mokoena, George Ndlovu; with Brian Matthee, General ManagerHuman Resources & Organisation of the Chryso Southern Africa Group. 

Four a.b.e. Construction Chemicals production staff members recently ‘graduated’ after successfully completing Chemical Operations (Chem OPS) training provided by the Institute for Quality’s Education Training and Development department.

a.b.e., which has operations in both Boksburg and Durban, is part of the Chryso Southern Africa Group.

Brian Matthee, GM: Human Resources and Organisation for the Group, says the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) Level One training was provided by a.b.e. as part of the Chryso Group’s commitment to BB-BEE, which includes substantial Group investment in learnerships and upgrading of staff skills. The Chem OPS training holds Chemical Industries Education and Training Authority (CHIETA) accreditation.

The four Boksburg-based a.b.e. production staff members who were ‘capped’ and received their certificates at a special graduation ‘Chem OPS’ ceremony organised by the Institute for Quality were:

  • Nathaniel Manganye and Jabulani Dlamini who successfully completed Chem OPS Level 1 training in Warehousing and Logistics; and
  • Mapule Mokoena and George Ndhlovu who successfully completed Chem OPS Level 1 training in Productiion.

“We had also enrolled another a.b.e. Boksburg factory staff member, Liberty Sibiya, who also successfully completed the training, but sadly passed away before the graduation ceremony,” Matthee stated.

He said the Chem OPS Level 1 students started their year-long, on-the-job training – which places emphasis on both theoretical and practical production aspects – at the beginning of 2013. “The candidates for the weekly four-hour voluntary training were selected after assessment by a.b.e. Their successful training – and visible improvement in production expertise as well as general enthusiasm – has inspired the four graduates’ colleagues to want to follow suit. The result was that a.b.e enrolled 11 more production staff members, as well as five Chryso production staff for the 2014 Chem OPS Level 1 course. The four a.b.e. graduates also followed their Chem OPS Level 1 training with Level 2 studies during 2014,” Matthee added.
