About this programme

ABOUT THIS PROGRAMME

CBMT is a training system for apprentices who are interested in learning a trade.

This method of training focuses strongly on the practical application of the trade requirements. Apprentices acquire essential skills in the workshop. After a prescribed duration of practical work experience (depending on your theoretical qualification level), you will ultimately be able to apply for a qualifying Trade Test in your chosen field as prescribed by the relevant SETA.

    Minimum Admission requirements

    Minimum Admission requirements

    The minimum entrance requirement for practical training is a Grade 12 or minimum N2 Certificate, preferably with Mathematics and Science.

    Automotive Body Repair and Spray-Painting minimum entrance requirement is Grade 9 pass

    Career Opportunities
