About Technotrain

We equip Artisans to succeed!

Technotrain was established in 2007 as a training division of Sturrock and Robson Industries (SRI) and was solely established as an in-house training facility.

As it was not a strategic fit within a portfolio of their businesses, SRI relinquished its interests in Technotrain and sold the business to new owners who now provide the requisite strategic direction within the South African vocational training industry.

With new management, the business has emerged as a formidable force, able to provide improved quality service to its clients and students. Growth has also been achieved through the establishment of another branch in Westmead, outside Pinetown in the KZN province.

We are proud to be a training partner to many organisations who trust us with their Artisan development programmes. Starting with only 13 apprentices, Technotrain has since impacted the lives of hundreds of apprentices every year.
