Fezamax Training Academy

We play a significant role in increasing the opportunities for better employment by equipping your workforce and local communities in which you operate with trades that are in demand.

The training academy was established in 2008 by the MCC group of companies. Fezamax, a wholly owned subsidiary of Buildmax (Pty) Ltd, acquired the business in 2017 and is 37,15% black owned and a Level 4 EME.

With a total of 21 dedicated and highly trained staff members, the training centre can accommodate 60 apprentices at any given time.

We maintain a high standard of training and produce highly qualifies artisans. We continuously strive to become the technical training academy in South Africa and our accreditations include MQA, MERSETA, TETA and HWSETA.

HWSETA Project

Fezamax in collaboration with Diesel Power Opencast Mining, Mesong Training & Development (“Mesong”) and HWSETA will be undergoing training 40 unemployed candidates who will be selected from the rural communities in which Diesel Power Opencast Mining operates. These candidates will be trained as earthmoving equipment mechanics, automotive electricians and boilermakers. During the course of the apprenticeship, the apprentices will attend institutional training at the Fezamax technical training academy in Kempton Park. The apprentices will receive practical experience on the various Diesel Power Opencast Mining sites. Although this is the first project with HWSETA, Fezamax together with Mesong will be working on similar projects to further expand to rural areas throughout South Africa.
