Technical Training Team
The TGS Technical & Fleet Training dept offers its expertise through training and consultancy to those in the humanitarian community. Our areas of specialisation are primarily based on road safety, fleet management and mechanical workshops and workshop practices. Our team also provides internal technical support to other TGS teams who need technical support relating to client field projects.
TGS offers face-to-face courses in the areas of Driving, Vehicle Recovery and Preventive Maintenance, Trainer of Trainers, Vehicle mechanics, Safe Drive Certificate, UNSSC Road safety, Fleet Management and tailor-made courses specific to the clients’ request. We send our team to the customer’s preferred location in order to carry out the training.
Recognising the move to remote working over the course of 2020, TGS now also provides an online course for professional drivers in the humanitarian sector. Upon completion and passing the TGS Competency Essentials the student obtains theoretical competencies as professional driver.
