The need for upskilling and training across Africa has never been more prevalent, with an increasing demand for flexible and long-term career opportunities. Often referred to as the world’s next growth market, trade with Africa has grown 300 percent in the last decade, outperforming Global average. It has become home to many of the world’s fastest-growing economies. The African continent is booming and requires a skilled and competent workforce to service the growth demands.


Some of the key industries seeing tremendous growth and offering employment opportunities are Technology, Energy and Education. SAFER Training are thrilled to be at the intersection of these industries and have and continue to provide a range of training and assessment products and services across the continent in countries such as: Angola, Cameroon, Chad, Egypt, Equatorial Guinea, Ghana, Nigeria, and South Africa.


To date SAFER Training have facilitated training to over 6500+ learners through our training centres in Africa. 


“Connecting individuals with work opportunities through access to the highest quality training is what drives our team. We are always looking for new connections and partnerships to grow our training footprint and increase the positive impact we can make”


“Our ‘OPITO in Box’ product and services have enabled these highly sought after approved products available at a fraction of the cost usually involved in travelling to locations where OPITO courses are offered.“


Ian McMillin, Managing Director


SAFER’s first training partnership in Africa was established in 2014 with Offshore Africa Training Centre (OATC) and was the first OPITO approved training centre in Sub-Saharan Africa. This partnership continues to prosper as evidenced by our new hub and state of the art training facility near Cape Town International airport.


It was this collaborative approach and SAFER’s track-record for delivering excellence that has since seen SAFER Training expand its presence through a number of additional partners; in Ghana with Rigworld Training, and Nigeria with True Blue Energy Services.


“Getting your staff home safe is an imperative for any business, anywhere in the world. Having staff trained and empowered with a safe attitude of mind within a safety framework to a recognised level will go a long way to achieve this. SAFER Training has the training staff, experience, courses and tools to ensure that African businesses are a safe prospect for both international trade and investment”.
