About Us

One of the buzzwords in the new South Africa is “Education and Training” – and rightly so, because our country and democracy will stand or fall by the level of education, skills, training, and competence of the majority of all its citizens.

The question many South Africans are asking is, however: Where can I get access to the right training? And, even more important, at a level that I can understand, and in a way that can guide me towards making the most of my life and career?

Our Training Philosophy:

  • We have a track record of success.
  • Our fees are competitive and include assessment/moderation of portfolios as well as comprehensive admin support.
  • ATS operates country-wide.
  • Training is outcomes-based in accordance with the criteria of the Unit Standards concerned.
  • Based on one of the principles of the NQF system, facilitators merely facilitate the learning process, whilst it is the responsibility of learners to gain in knowledge, skills and attitude.
  • Experiential learning is utilised as the primary training technique, enabling learners to learn through experimentation and direct involvement in the execution of assignments, under the guidance of the facilitator.
  • ATS operates through extended contact phases, ensuring that the bulk of training activities, including portfolio building and summative assessments, are done during the courses, thus ensuring a 99% success rate.
