AFGRI is offering an opportunity for an exciting apprentice training programme at our various branches in South Africa. We seek dynamic, self-motivated individuals with the necessary technical ability wishing to qualify as an Artisan are invited to apply. The Apprenticeship Programme affords the incumbent the opportunity to grow within AFGRI under the mentorship of our leaders, informal training as well as on-the-job development rotations in multidisciplinary teams.

This apprenticeship will be a 3-year in-service training experience.  This will be towards a qualification known as Tractor Mechanic.  The first 6 months is the probation time period.  This period is used for the company and the employee to make sure it is a long-term relationship. Any party may withdraw in this period without any consequences.

Thereafter the apprentice will be bound by an AFGRI contract and start his actual training.  This training includes: The apprentice will be going to a Practical Training Institute in the different phases needed (If needed). At the same time, the apprentice will be written-in for N subjects needed at a College and will study as distance learning (If needed and if available).

It is expected to attend classes on Saturdays also. The distance learning might continue as needed while at the workplace. The apprentice will undergo Product Training at the John Deere Training Facility in Boksburg and other suppliers as well as Internal training hosted by our own Specialists.
