Cape Town – The National Electronic Media Institute of South Africa (Nemisa) has partnered with the Walter Sisulu University (WSU) to provide specialized cellphone repair training for youth in the Eastern Cape.

Nemisa launched the training at the Walter Sisulu University campus in Potsdam, Eastern Cape. The goal of the training is to increase the number of cellphone repair technicians in the Eastern Cape region. Nemisa has previously collaborated with the Vaal University of Technology to train young people in other provinces.

The purpose of the training is to equip learners with the skills needed to work as qualified cellphone repair technicians. They will be able to troubleshoot, repair, and maintain different types of cellphones in both urban and rural areas.

Rorisang Molukanele, Nemisa’s collaboration director, stated that learners will also learn broader competencies that will prepare them for the workforce and develop their entrepreneurial abilities.

Molukanele emphasized the importance of South Africans acquiring digital skills to fully participate in the digital economy. While many people in the country are digitally excluded, cellphone repair is a technical skill that supports the National Digital and Future Skills strategy. This strategy aims to rapidly upskill South African citizens in digital and technical skills, particularly women and youth, at different levels.

Yonela Tukwayo, the spokesperson for WSU, explained that first-year students from three academic programs have taken measures to enhance their knowledge of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Approximately 60 students from the Management, Local Government Finance, and Financial Information Systems programs at the Buffalo City Campus have enrolled in the internationally recognized IBM Data Science course conducted at Potsdam in May. This course is expected to enrich their academic experience and improve their chances of employment.
