South African Airways Technical Training Apprenticeship Programs are based on the Modular Competency Based Training (CBMT) philosophy. The apprenticeship department is the main developer of this training. CBMT is a structured and individualized learning process that is self-paced but managed over time. A course plan indicating the objective and the number of modules is arranged in a sequential logical order. Each module covers a specific area of the courses and addresses the skills appropriately. Each module ends with the successful completion of a criteria test.
Although each respective course does not have a time limit, but rather a performance, the time required to successfully master the required modules depends largely on the individual’s own initiative and motivation: however, on average, a learner must complete a course. complete in 2-3 years.
If necessary, trainees are expected to take and pass a Technical College block course, and then undergraduate studies are optional. Each profession has specific tasks / responsibilities to ensure the airworthiness and safety of aircraft. Each candidate is expected to choose, in order of preference from the list of occupations and based on their interests, abilities and potential, the occupation that interests them most.
