About Jan

Johannes has been involved in training for over 30 years, starting in 1983 with in-service-training of apprentices and further development of fitter artisans at the Sasol Training Center. In 1988 he was delegated to a MIMS Project team with the mandate to design and develop a full training program with materials for doing MIMS (Mincom Information Management Systems) Training.

After 4 years as Computer Systems Coordinator (MIMS), he and his family relocated to Mossel Bay where he accepted a position as Fitter Foreman at Mossgas. In 1995 he became a Trainer and Training Co-ordinator involved in the design and development of Material Handling Vehicle Operator training material, as well as facilitating and assessing training in operating lift trucks and cranes.

In 2003, Johannes was an Internal CHIETA Constituent Moderator and project leader at the PetroSA Center of Excellence in designing and the development of training materials for mechanical, rigging, welding, and boiler making trades, i.e. Trainer-, Learner- and Assessment Guides per trade mentioned. The result of these and the condition of the final workshops was of such high quality that they could obtain full accreditation with the CHIETA in 2001.

In the next 12 years, Johannes worked as Training Superintendent accredited with the Transport Education Training Authority as Assessor and Moderator, where he managed a team of reliability and engineering trainers, responsible for electrical, control systems, mechanical, workshop services and lifting machine operator training. This included reliability and engineering services both onshore and offshore (FA Platform and ORCA). In 2016, Johannes retired and became a consultant in Human Resource Development (B-Tech HRD Honours Cum Laude).
