Mahindra opens a skills development centre

Mahindra South Africa has opened the doors of its new training centre in Centurion.

Mahindra South Africa has opened a new development centre in Centurion. The new centre opened last week more than doubles the space of its previous facility and will be used for all internal and dealer training as well as welcoming dealers and staff from other countries in the Southern African Development Community.

Mahindra SA’s CEO Rajesh Gupta said, “With the growth of the Mahindra brand in recent years, we have completely outgrown our previous technical training facility. The new training centre will allow us to train more people more often. Ultimately, this renewed focus on training and skills development should reflect in even better customer service on the showroom floor.”

The new training centre has taken into consideration the impact of recent lockdowns and offers a mix of in-person and online training. The latter is made possible by modern technology that allows Mahindra’s training team to provide classroom and interactive style training to remote learners.

The centre is also equipped with a dedicated workshop and a simulated sales environment, both of which will allow attendees to apply their training immediately and be tested on their skills and competence.

With its comprehensive list of training programmes, the training centre offers full training certification for all of its technical and interpersonal courses. All courses were developed by Mahindra’s own technical specialists specifically for South Africa.
