Civil Engineering Training Courses | Integral Risk Advisors

Civil Engineering Training at Integral Risk

The Civil Engineering Training at Integral Risk provides Civil Engineering Training for different work situations and assists in familiarising trainees with the different needs and challenges of these environments. Our company is expanding its Civil Engineering Training of Advisors and also trains supervisors in the Civil Engineering and use of machines to make them aware of the operational parameters and maintenance needs of machines.

The Civil Engineering Training course trains operators in an almost ideal work environment. The company has identified a need to familiarise the trainees with different and less ideal work environments to simulate the types of environments the operators will operate their machines in.

Our company focuses strongly on practical training and conducts on-site training for clients where the operators can practise on familiar machines. This includes training operators in the basics of how different machines work.

Integral Risk also trains supervisors of machine operations in the basics of earthmoving equipment and the workings of the machines they must oversee. This training enables supervisors to identify dangers in the work environment, increase productivity, reduce cycle times and determine whether machines are being used for the correct application. This helps to reduce downtime and reduces costs related to unnecessary repairs as well as improves the scheduling of preventive maintenance interventions.

Our company is currently expanding its supervisor training programme and trains supervisors on mines throughout Gauteng.

Key areas that the Civil Engineering Training focuses on include Construction Plant Operations, Supervision of Construction Process, Construction Health and Safety, General Construction education and training certificates. The correct operation of equipment and the importance of carrying out a thorough walk-around inspection of the machine before use. The inspection is an important part of the Civil Engineering Training because it improves the performance of machines and reduces downtime and prevents work-related injuries. Trainees need to know why they must conduct inspections, what they must look for in different machines, as well as how to report problems.

The preoperational checks also form part of the preventive maintenance theme in the programme that emphasises early identification of problems to save costs and reduce operational downtime owing to breakdowns. Proper machine operation also reduces operational strain on a machine. The programme also places emphasis on reaction to, and reporting of, on-board warnings to reduce maintenance costs and prolong the machine’s life cycle.

Accredited Qualifications at Integral Risk

Integral Risk are accredited Training Advisors, these qualifications are in line with the new South African Qualifications Authority requirements.

The training offered by our company revolves around two main needs of industry and includes training novices to operate machines and improving the capabilities and performance of skilled operators.

The first training course incorporates Construction Plant Operations programme, where people with a minimum qualification of grade 12, with maths and science, are trained to operate equipment. The company does not provide employment for those who have finished the course, but has determined that people who those complete the programme find work in the mining and construction industries in South Africa within a year. The programme is successful because mines are able to hire machine operators who are already trained and can focus on particular issues that are specific to that work environment.

The second training programme teaches Supervision of Construction Process how to use supervise more effectively, faster and more economically. The second course is only offered to operators with a minimum of requirement and it’s not for the soft hearted people. The course, known as Supervision of Construction Process, concentrates on the effective and productive supervision skills in construction.

A training course at Integral Risk takes a certain time to complete. The biggest cost associated with the training is the practical work of the machine for the practical training. This is why the Integral Risk does on-site training, wherever possible, and also uses new technologies, such as simulators, to reduce the costs of its programmes.

Integral Risk offers on-site training throughout Gauteng and also hosts sessions in other parts of South-Africa. The main challenges encountered by the academy are the language barriers in other African countries if the training needs to be provided there.

Integral Risk long-term goal is to give training to other countries where we can teach and provide our accreditation experience to mines and to generate the most demand for the best operator and workers in Civil Engineering Training.
