Focus on a Member: CRDC

Councillor Mpume Chamane
Guest Speaker CRDC Logo Launch

These are very exciting times for CRDC, besides being one of the four KwaZulu-Natal training providers to be awarded trade test status by CETA, they have just launched their new logo along with their new look website that incorporates the new branding.

In addition to their Civils and management related skills training, they also cover all building disciplines which is great news for the industry as it means that testing no longer has to take place outside of the Province. CRDC Programs include painting, plastering, tiling, bricklaying, block laying, plumbing to basic and advanced handyman.

At the launch of their new brand, a flyer was handed out that communicated the following mission statement.

"The Construction Resource Development is an equal opportunity employer which strives to be the best and most successful training provider for the Construction Industry because we believe it will be to the advantage of our clients and beneficiaries as well as the people who work for us.
