At Grain Carriers we believe in people and the power of learning. We provide an extensive one-year learning programme for approximately 20 inexperienced drivers. The course runs from March to February, during which time the candidates will receive their Advanced Driving Qualifications. Defensive Driving is part of this course. The theoretical part of our course is presented by external skills development contractors. Our goal with this learning initiative is to have our candidates fully certified to facilitate, assess and moderate the course themselves, within two years of completing their training. The practical part of our course will be presented by both Grain Carriers Driver Trainers and the contractor. This Grain Carriers Initiative is sponsored by TETA (Transport Education and Training Authority) and UIF (Unemployment Insurance).
