Road to Registration for Mentors, Supervisors and HR Practitioners


Get Behind Your Candidates! Make your experience work for them!    In today’s pressurised and demanding business world, engineering firms need all the help they can get to advance their candidates to ECSA registration.   Working on the front-line of SA’s struggle to beat the skills shortage, you can rely on the Candidate Academy to assist you with input and practical tools.


If you are a supervisor, team leader, mentor or manage engineering candidates this one-day facilitator-led course is for you! Come and understand your millennial graduates and how to engage with them, motivate and grow them, develop a win-win solution for a competent professional and a more productive and committed employee. With well over a decade of experience focused on mentoring, training and skills research we have supported thousands of candidates in their journey towards professional registration with ECSA. Let us show you how.

Why Should an Individual Attend?

This one-day course is the equivalent course that we offer to candidates to understand and navigate the process to achieve ECSA registration. This course is offered to those (supervisors and ECSA registered mentors) imparting the practical skills to candidates and those (human resources) who are involved in the rotation and placement of candidates. It includes the tools to make up a workplace training plan, with digital enhancements to make the planning, tracing and reporting of activities easier to manage for mentors, supervisors and candidates.


This course will provide you with the tools to know:
  • Where your candidates are in the registration process
  • The competencies that your candidates will need to master during their candidacy phase
  • Your roles and responsibilities as a mentor, supervisor, coach or HR Manager in the registration process
  • Coaching and mentoring techniques
  • How to understand your candidates and their needs
  • How the Portfolio of Evidence files are best used to keep track of candidates’ progress and achievements
  • How to take your candidates from novice-stage to competent professionals
