    Who can benefit

    The Seebox classes are for any company which employs people in a technical field, and who will benefit from at least a basic understanding of the abstract principles of electricity in their day-to-day work.  Factory and mining workers, technicians and salespersons are all examples of people who will benefit directly.

  • About the Educational Content

    • Seebox won many international and local awards for its unique patented ability to teach Electronic Engineering.
    • The concepts are explained in a simple visual way with videos, followed by questions and consolidated with practical experiments.  This ensures true understanding and ability to apply knowledge in practice.
    • The learning material is self-paced, guiding the workers through the course, each at their own pace.
    • The curriculum is CAPS aligned.  The complete course is up to N3 level.  The Electronics Fundamentals course takes about 3 months, 1 hour per week, and the worker earns EWSETA Accredited Unit Standards.
  • How the Classes work

    • We place one or more leased Seebox at your premises for your workers to use.
    • All it requires is 1 hour per week for each worker training on the Seebox(es).
    • Workers work at their own pace, gaining technical skills that will benefit them and the company.
    • The content is packed with practical experiments where they have to apply the principles learned.
    • Each month the company gets Progress Reports of each worker.
    • The Fundamentals of Electricity and Electronics course should take about 3 months of weekly sessions to complete.
    • Don’t want to manage the classes yourself? One of our franchisees can come to your workplace with the Seeboxes, and manage the process for you.
  • Benefits for the Company

    • No investment required for any equipment, personnel or content.
    • Training is on-site, and only takes 1 hour of the worker’s time per week, fit into their work schedule.
    • Practical hands-on and self-paced learning.
    • Companies get a tax break on SDL spent.
    • Workers get credits for the relevant EWSETA Unit Standards.
    • With the individual progress tracking and reporting, the employer can identify workers with untapped potential.
      After 3 months of weekly training sessions, the end result is a more skilled, productive worker.
    • Or why not sponsor some promising young people to do the course at your premises, using your CSI budget. That way you can earn BBBEE points while also identifying promising potential future employees?
