Trainers for taxi drivers
The KZN Taxi and Commuter Corporation (KZNTCC) is busy qualifying 32 facilitators to train taxi drivers in KZN.
KZNTCC chair Boy Zondi said the trainers are generally ex-teachers or ex-principals who are well qualified to do this training.
“They also all have some connection to the taxi industry as operators or members of association executive committees,” said Zondi.
“The taxi industry in KZN believes that it has the capacity to conduct its own training and we are going to be doing this through the KZNTCC,” he said. The training is funded using R385 000 that was awarded to the KZNTCC to qualify 100 learners with 22 credits at the Transport Education and Training Authority (Teta).
