Hope is instilled in residents of Postmasburg and surrounding towns in terms of equipping themselves with workplace environment training and working towards filling the skills gap throughout the country.

This is thanks to local non-profit company, Aquila Summa Offensa Responsio Iugales Prae­structio (ASORIP), which has made a mark in the corporate world as training partner in employees’ training needs.

Established in 2012, ASORIP offers a range of both business and training development services.

As a registered and accredited training provider, ASORIP is lauded for being equipped with fully qualified facilitators.

It is further geared with resources needed to develop employees’ potential to the fullest. Registered students applauded ASORIP.

Denzil Diergaardt confirmed that he had attended the training to equip him with the skills, knowledge and attitude to become a competent assessor in his workplace.

“Now I can also empower my colleagues to fill the skills gap in the workplace,” said Diergaardt.

James Sedilang also expressed his satisfaction.

“Now I can even assist my children with their school work with the assessment training that I obtained. I enrolled for this course to enable me to make a career change later,” said Sedilang.

A female student, Judith Kgakatsi, highlighted the shortage of female instructors in her company.

“I enrolled to prove that, as a wo­man, nothing is impossible in a men’s world. Now I am a qualified assessor,” said Kgakatsi.
