Hytec engineers a new qualification
January 2018, News


The Hytec Group has become South Africa’s first company to receive full accreditation as a training provider to qualify fluid power fitters. The company received full accreditation with programme approval from the MerSETA to provide theoretical and practical training for the National Certificate Mechanical Engineering: Fitting (Fluid Power); and the National Certificate Mechanical Engineering: Fitting (Manufacturing, Engineering and Related Industries), both at NQF level II.

There are currently four learners undergoing training at Hytec who, once qualified, will be the first certified fluid power fitters in South Africa trained by a South African training provider. “This is an achievement that the South African fluid power industry has been striving to achieve since 2009 when the qualification was originally registered with SAQA,” says group training manager, Allen van Gent. “The importance of the certification cannot be underestimated. There are numerous mechanical fitters with hydraulics industry experience and now they can receive formal recognition. The scope of training encompasses everything that a fluid power fitter needs to know in order to conduct his day-to-day activities. It is believed that qualified fluid power fitters will save their companies or clients hours in downtime and reduce their spare parts expenditure.”

Currently Hytec’s training facilities provide for theoretical and practical learning of 36 learners. However, once housed in the new Hytec facility due to open in 2018, three dedicated training rooms will be able to accommodate a combined capacity of 120 people. Another part of the learning experience will be a state-of-the-art WS290 hydraulic and pneumatic training workstation donated by Bosch Rexroth Germany. The hydraulic power unit, with a loud sensing double pump, can accommodate four to six trainees simultaneously.
