The ASDA Academy curriculum equips students with practical artisanal skills to make them employable in the commercial sector or to become entrepreneurs in their own rights. A number of courses spanning different industrial trades are offered, including boilermaking, bricklaying, professional painting and carpentry. In addition, the training centre provides individuals with the necessary assistance in preparing for their trade test. Ekurhuleni Artisans and Skills Training Centre (EASTC) is a proudly approved ASDA Training Provider, and provides opportunities for hands-on investors to become ‘principals’ of their own training colleges. The business package includes a turnkey college, including the setting up of the workshops for the courses that the licensee has chosen to implement.
