Technicians for Africa courses
Technicians for Africa is sponsored by Caterpillar, the global leader in construction and mining equipment. Caterpillar has created this curriculum using courses from the Caterpillar University Global Service Technician training program. So you know it’s good!
The curriculum consists of 18 courses: four Introductory courses, ten Level 1 courses and four Level 2 courses. Completion time is estimated to take approximately 3-6 months. (Yes. That’s right. It’s comprehensive. This is the real deal and you will need to work hard but the results could well be worth the effort.)
All the courses are virtual (computer-based). You can take the courses from home, from school, from a library or from anywhere you have a decent Internet connection.
