As far as our learning offering is concerned, we offer various training options. Although the traditional Classroom instruction will never fade away, we encourage the Blended Learning Approach of Distance Learning with Contact Sessions and Online Learning. We created an satdi.ensino-LMS platform so that we can reach the people that need the training most. Short courses as well as full qualifications are presented.

Our Vision is to provide training opportunities to thousands of people who need it but cannot afford formal training institutions. The satdi.ensino-LMS was developed specifically with those people in mind who are denied the opportunity due to poor infrastructure.

The SA Government developed various programmes to persuade local companies to invest in training initiatives, such as Learnerships, Internships and Bursary Programmes. In return for their investment, the companies’ status on the B-BBEE scorecard is improved and they contribute towards resolving the education crisis in South Africa. South African Training and Development Institute is fully supportive of B-BBEE training initiatives and works in close cooperation with consulting firms that can assist in this regard.
