Interwaste is committed to building capacity and helping raise the general levels of expertise within the waste and landfill management industry. The company has developed a series of training courses covering NQF levels 1-4. which are accredited by the LG SETA. Interwaste is an accredited Waste management Training provider and training modules are aimed at companies and municipalities.
Interwaste's theoretical and practical training components, which are taken in written and practical exams, benefit employees ranging from general landfill staff to supervisors, waste managers and environmental officers.
The courses offer everything from administration and management skills to landfill techniques and safety training. Custom modules can also be structured.
The municipal and private sector have expressed the need for specialised training for their employees in the best practice, for the management of landfill sites, in the aim of providing learners with specialised knowledge regarding waste disposal and to back the theory with practical examples during the short courses. They also serve as a refresher for experience staff and provide updates in legislation and the impact thereof.
Typical candidates for these courses are persons currently employed by municipalities, mines, utility corporations and private companies, who manage the disposal of waste and landfill sites and who perform related activities relevant to the disposal of waste.
In addition to the more general and wide ranging waste management industry training curriculum, a training matrix has been developed to focus specifically on landfill management and operation. This includes:
