A four-year collaboration between global railway engineering firm, Ansaldo STS and the Botswana Railways recently yielded its first fruits when two citizens graduated from an Electrician and Railway Signalling apprenticeship programme.

Phineas Murinda and Kennedy Sesinyi graduated after four years of study. In November they received their Electrical Certificates at a Botswana Training Authority (BOTA) graduation ceremony. At the end of last month, the two received their Railway Signalling certificates, after completing in-service training with Ansaldo STS.

The training was both institutional and on-the-job.

This means the qualifications Murinda and Sesinyi received are internationally recognised.
