KSB supports SABI schools training

Second Quarter 2020 News & events

KSB Pumps and Valves has once again thrown its support behind the initiative by the South African Irrigation Institute (SABI) to present irrigation courses to grade 11 school pupils. The SABI training forms part of the curriculum for Agricultural Technology, Agricultural Science and Agricultural Management Practices for schools and is presented as a two and a half day course in Irrigation to grade 11 learners.

According to SABI’s Riana Lombard, the programme is expanding as interest grows and the word gets around. “We are confident that the SABI training programme for agricultural schools yields positive results on many fronts in the irrigation industry in South Africa and are thankful to KSB for presenting the pump and motor section of the course. We believe that the SABI agricultural schools programme is important for the next generation of young South Africans.

“It provides basic training specific to irrigation and water supply for farming,” says Jason Nel, KSB Durban branch manager, who provided the training. “This year KSB included physical pump components so that the experience was more interactive and learners were able to touch and see the working parts of a pump. We know that the investment will provide these future farmers with a positive sentiment towards KSB and an understanding that KSB is always there to support our farmers.” The group represented people from all areas and all population groups and showed that farming will be in good hands in coming generations.
