Every year DWR Distribution, South Africa, kicks off with the Prolyte Rigging Training Course, an internationally recognized five day course presented by Rinus Bakker from Rhino Rigs. This year the Prolyte course has been evaluated and is registered to provide 48 CPD (continuous professional development) credits that can be used to earn and maintain the CertAV professional designations. Prolyte Group is proud of this achievement and acknowledges this as encouragement to persevere with its training program.

Kevan Jones, Executive Director of the South African Communications Industries Association (SACIA) explains, “In February 2015 SACIA was recognised by SAQA (South African Qualifications Authority) as the professional body for the broadcast and AV community across Southern Africa. We have registered 6 professional designations and are in the process of developing additional designations for the theatre and live events sector. In order to earn and maintain a professional designation, candidates are required to participate in on on-going programme of training and skills development.

“These training courses need to be validated to ensure they are aligned to international standards and specifically relevant to the needs of our local marketplace. The Prolyte course has been evaluated and is registered to provide 48 CPD credits that can be used to earn and maintain the CertAV professional designations.”

In a market that is developing as rapidly as today’s modern AV environment, it is important for industry professionals to participate in an on-going programme of training and skills development.  “The Prolyte rigging course is the first training programme to be validated by SACIA to provide CPD credits that can be used by AV professionals to maintain a SAQA-recognised professional designation,” he ended.
