Minister of Communications warns people about bogus ‘DTT training centres

Ms Faith MuthambiThe Minister of Communications, Ms Faith Muthambi, would like to warn the public about bogus training centres which purport to offer short courses on DTT set-top box installation.

In last few weeks the Department of Communications has been inundated with calls from people wanting to verify the legality of these institutions.

“I call on people to refrain from attending courses offered by these institutions. These centres are operating illegally and have no accreditation. As the department we are yet to make an official announcement on which centres will be accredited to offer such courses,” said Minister Muthambi.

The Department of Communications is working closely with the Department of Labour to design an accredited course for DTT installers. Once the course content is finalised, the Department of Communications will communicate through various community and main stream media about where interested individuals can go to undertake such training.

While the process of migrating from analogue to digital television presents economic opportunity for South Africans, people must be vigilant and avoid being robbed of their hard-earned money.
