Online Training Overview

All our training will be done via GoToTraining, a tried-and-tested, secure training platform.

  • Delegates will join the online session each day of the scheduled course by clicking on the link to join, emailed to you by our skills department. This will be shared a few days before training. Please click on the link and download
  • Training instruction will be facilitated live over four days, from 08:30 – 13:00.
  • Delegates will have the option to interact during the Q&As, live polls and in ‘virtual’ breakout rooms.
  • Links to download the course training manual, and any other handouts will be shared during the live session and through emails.
  • Class size will be limited to 40 delegates to ensure high-level of engagement and interaction.
  • A minimum of 10 delegates are required for a training course to go ahead – we reserve the right to postpone a scheduled training if we do not reach the required minimum.

Standard NCPC-SA quality – online

 Whilst we have adapted the delegate experience to offer an engaging and interactive experience on the GoTo platform, the quality of the content and standard of outcomes remains the same as the quality courses you would expect to get in the classroom at the NCPC-SA or in-house.

Certification

Candidates will have an option to write a test at the end of the training. The test is not compulsory, however, NCPC-SA certificates of competence will only be issued to candidates who pass the test with a minimum score of 70%.

CPD Accreditation

All NCPC-SA courses are accredited by ECSA and CPD letters will be issued to candidates that attend all sessions of a particular course. Attendance will be monitored via the video function of the on-line training platform.

If at any time you have questions not covered on these pages, contact our skills development team for more information.  

Did you know?

In-house training sessions can be still be arranged on request and will be hosted online. These training events are charged at a flat rate regardless of the number of delegates. You may contact the Skills Development team for more details on ncpcgreenskills@csir.co.za

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.
