PUTCO has four dedicated training buses that are used exclusively to train and test bus drivers.
- PUTCO has a well resourced training Training academy based in Lea Glen, Roodepoort with full time training personnel.
- The new centre, established in November 2007, provides improved facilities, with the latest equipment and technology. The IT Training Centre is set up to train 12 delegates per course. Our training environment is far more conducive for learning to take place.
All training programmes such as driver, technical, management; IT and health and safety training, to name a few, take place at the training academy.
We are fortunate to have the full support of our dynamic MD, Mr. Franco Pisapia and the senior management of PUTCO behind our initiatives. This translates into training and development being part of the core strategy our business. With the Bus Rapid Transit Project ( BRT)and 2010 creeping upon us at a rapid pace, we realise that we have to reach specific targets as the largest bus company in South Africa. We are gearing ourselves to achieve our objectives so that we can make a meaningful contribution.
Our training has been outsourced to various providers. They offer tailored training interventions as well as accredited programmes that not only meet the needs and objectives of the scarce and critical skills list as defined by the Seta for our sector, but also our business needs.
