Prisma Training Solutions to open training centre in Ghana

Specialist mining training provider Prisma Training Solutions is set to open a formal training centre in Accra, Ghana that will offer customized and sustainable education, training and organisational development solutions to the African mining sector.

The firm’s MD Jacques Farmer made the announcement and said they are in the process of finalizing its applications to open the centre. The application has been submitted to industry body, the Ghana Chamber of Mines, and Prisma and its partner are “patiently waiting” to hear from the chamber as to whether its application has been successful.

“Our local partners in Ghana have already secured a premises for the training through a prominent mining house in the district, which will enable us to equip and open the training facility as soon as approval is granted,” he adds.

Blended approach

The company aims to use the training centre as a springboard into other West African countries, such as Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, with further growth planned to the east, in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Prisma previously sent a facilitator to clients in West Africa for periods ranging from two weeks to a year, depending on the scope of the training provided. It will recruit community members around its operations to facilitate skills and knowledge transfer among its host communities, consequently solidifying Prisma’s goal of creating a permanent footprint in those areas.

Farmer adds that the company aims to follow a “blended approach” in its training that fulfills the entire career-path requirements of the mining sector; from learner mine workers, progressing up the developmental chain to fully qualify mine managers. Consequently, the company has added mineral processing and metallurgy to its course portfolio to expand on its “full-circle mining” training approach.

“Prisma offers training, from entry level machine operators to mineral processing and mine management, in a range of languages and mediums,” he enthuses.
