The courses offered by HRETD are short-skills training interventions. This means that our courses never exceed 40 notional hours or five days for novice training and one day for recertification.

Short skills training interventions are designed to be integral to the realities of the commercial landscape. Short skills courses are time-bound, ensuring minimal disruption to production schedules, less cost to company; perfect for corporates with a busy production schedule.
