This free building course is open to those who have completed matric with maths as a subject, but those who don’t meet this qualification can undergo psychometric tests to prove their capabilities for the course. Students can potentially earn money while they study to become builders.

The course lasts four years in total, and is mainly hands on and experience driven with a number of companies offering positions to students who are on the course.

The course has many successful participants, including Gabaitsiwe Medupe, who is now a construction manager and safety officer at Pinelands Development Company.

“I learnt everything about the industry, including how to manage materials and labour, how to build a house, the tendering process and the legal requirements that one must follow for compliance,” says Medupe.
