Training Program

Abacus Automation has recognized the threat to the industry in South Africa due to the lack of skilled technicians and engineers. In cooperation with local industry a training center is being established to fast track trainees who show the aptitude and potential so that they can be fed into industry to service the more complex machinery with PLC’s and drives. These trainees are sourced from a number of different training institutions and after successfully completing the 6 month training program are employed into industry as trainee service technicians.

Applications are welcome from anyone with a basic technical / computer background. An assessment test must be completed before being considered for the program.
