English language, literacy and numeracy support is offered to learners who do not speak English as a first language – and to other groups who require assistance to become proficient in the use of industry specific language.
Professional development programs for trainers, supervisors, executives and managers are available and every effort is made to provide for innovative and flexible methods of training. Courses are conducted as face-to-face classes at SMIT training rooms.
