Our Mission

To provide employers and aspirant individuals with high‑quality business and related skills develop­ment training, through scheduled public courses and exclusive, in‑house inter­ventions.

Our Services

KZN Business Training Centre  offers public courses at select locations in Kwa-Zulu Natal according to a pre‑determined schedule. This allows companies with specific, small volume training requirements to train their staff cost‑effectively.

In addition to these “Public Courses”, we offer all our courses on an “exclusive basis”, either at our facility or “in‑house” at client premises anywhere in South Africa, or even beyond our borders. This type of inter­vention is increasingly cost‑effective in relation to the number of dele­gates trained. When training an exclusive group, we try to gather as much relevant information from the client as possible in order to focus on those modules of the programme most pertinent to their needs.

The Covid-19 pandemic has allowed us to broaden our offering to include live “e-Training” over a range of platforms which we also do in combination with face-to-face classes.

We can and often do “realign and develop” material to specific needs by combining elements and modules from a range of courses.

Our courses are practical and highly interactive, with an emphasis on application rather than purely theoretical knowledge. Case studies are extensively used to convey the learning content and delegates are encouraged to partici­pate in group discussions.
