Timothy Fasheun Group Enviromentors (Pty) Enviromentors (Pty) Ltd is accredited by Local Government Sector Education and Training Authority (LGSETA) to train and upskill Leaners in line with the South African Qualification Authority(SAQA) for National Qualification Level 1 to 5 in environmental Management Services.

We are also registered by the Department of Higher Education as a Private College.
The aim is to produce a much needed human capital at both lower and middle level in the field of environmental management and services in South Africa.

The Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment, in South Africa, requires Companies to participate in skill development and employment equity. There is therefore a BEE Scorecard through which companies can be measured and thus credited using 40 indicators. A Company needs to achieve as many points as possible out of a maximum of 100 available points. A Company can therefore sponsor a Learnership Program, such as ours, for some unemployed and previously disadvantaged learners, so as to make them employable. Such skill development sponsorship counts for 20 points.
.
Timothy Fasheun Group Enviromentors offer both Contact and Online accredited and non-accredited Training in the field of environmental management. We are able to customise our courses to suit the needs of our clients. Our Team is made of registered and seasoned facilitators.
