College of Production Technology

The College of Production Technology (CPT) originates from a synergy of educators and trainers with many years of experience in educating, training and business and thus provides access to a wide education and training spectrum.

Since the College of Production Technology was established it has successfully provided part-time courses to students of industry, in the fields of production technology, planning, logistics, quality, work engineering, human resources and strategic management. The College has programme approval status with MerSETA (17-QA/ACC/0030/06), Wholesale and Retail Seta (236) and the Transport Seta (TETA08-175).

The College began with academics and business people with knowledge and practical experience of adult education, who identified a need in business and among the general public for more education in production and related fields and the business function of manufacturing. In co-operation with other suppliers of business education, courses were developed to meet these needs. These courses were aimed at the industry to educate and empower employees, at companies in the marketplace such as Aberdare Cables, Aspen Pharmaceuticals, Ford Motor Company, Denel, Robor, CBI, Bosal Afrika, Bridgestone, Cobra Isca, Scaw Metals, Plascon Paints, UD Trucks, DHL, Vital Distribution Services, BidVest, and many more, with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes appropriate for the production of products and the objectives of business.

As the knowledge and interest in the production and operations function has grown, courses have also been structured for high quality, practical, outcomes based in-house training. The College has received very positive feedback from learners and business as a whole in this regard, culminating in the College being awarded the Department of Trade and Industry’s Business Excellence Award in 2002 in the category ‘Partnership and Collaboration.’ In July 2012, the College won the “Best Training Programme by a Small Company” award at the BHP Billiton Skills Development Summit at the CSIR International Conference Centre in Pretoria.

The aim of the College is to develop and present comprehensive learning programmes in the manufacturing and supply chain functions of business. This would not only ensure academic progression but also articulate with other institutions.
