Unique mechatronics academy
2nd Quarter 2019, News & events


ElectroMechanica (EM) has set a new benchmark in the automation industry by collaborating with Polytech Africa in establishing the first Mechatronics Academy to be accredited by merSETA. This will focus on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) Level 2 learnership. This is based on essential aspects of precision mechanical engineering, electronics, and computer design systems used to control and automate mechanical products with electrical signals. Here EM plays a vital role, as its specialised products include the Delta industrial automation range.

Upon completion of the NQF Level 2 qualification, certificate holders will be able to gain entry to highly-skilled sectors such as mechanical and electrical engineering, pneumatics and hydraulics, robotics, PLCs, CN), industrial IT, the automotive sector and precision welding.

“She adds that the Mechatronics Academy will play a vital role in addressing the skills shortage in the automation industry, particularly in Africa. “While we have a good skills base in South Africa, the main problem is the pipeline of younger people entering the field. We definitely need to enhance the existing skills and develop new ones. “We are upping the ante on the usual product training to offer a fully-accredited and recognised academy that give learners a skills-based education to prepare them for the workplace of the future,” says EM director, Andrew Nobbs. “Our customers and the industry will have access to employees who are workplace-ready through on-the-job skills development, with formal accreditation.”
