Courses offered

The NCPC-SA offers training at Introductory, End User and Expert level, and training courses have been designed to provide a comprehensive learning pathway for those wishing to develop expertise in the field.

  • RECP training is based on the UNIDO/UNEP toolkit and equips trainees with the skills required to conduct RECP assessments and implementation in companies. RECP methodologies include the analysis of raw materials, water, waste and energy consumption and identification of resource efficiency opportunities.
  • Energy Management Systems training programme
    Presents a methodological, organised approach to managing energy usage, based on the SANS/ISO50001 standard. It is aimed at individuals who are responsible for developing and implementing energy management systems in companies.
  • Energy Systems Optimisation training programmes
    Include courses on a number of energy systems, including Compressed Air, Fans, Pumps, Steam and Motors. They combine theoretical and practical components as well as appropriate software toolkits.

End User Training
The End User training will provide technical professionals with the knowledge and tools necessary to initiate resource efficient and cleaner production (RECP), energy management systems (EnMS) and energy systems optimisation (ESO) interventions, as well as a holistic understanding of the benefits and processes of RECP, EnMS and ESO.

Delegates wishing to progress to Expert Level (when social distancing permits) will need to complete and pass the test at conclusion of the End User training. This test, together with the successfully completed Energy Management 101 course and screening of a candidate’s CV for their suitability will constitute the requirements to enter the relevant Expert Level programme.
