Railway Introduction Course gives Ekurhuleni students a taste of Gibela
Gibela has developed a Railway Introduction Course (RIC) to nurture interest in South Africa’s rail industry among students working in related disciplines. The course is run in collaboration with Ekurhuleni East College (EEC), a TVET with campuses across Ekurhuleni. Through the course, we aim to introduce students to our operations, and to show them how South Africa’s railway industry is being modernized.
Since the inception of the programme in 2016, the RIC has been attended by 300 learners from Ekurhuleni East College and Tshwane University of Technology. The course covers theory and site visits at Gibela factory, or/and Alstom Ubunye and the PRASA Wolmerton depot to see the trains and experience what it’s like to work on the ground at Gibela.
