Over a quarter of a century PC Training and Business College was a well-known name for young people who were looking to gain relevant skills with a computing and business focus.
The company was well-known in Seta, government and youth circles and ran many successful campuses across the country. So successful in fact that it grew into the Richfield college brand.
Richfield carried on the legacy and expanded the range of qualifications offered. The courses included those that were offered at the equivalent level to colleges - and those offered at the equivalent level to university courses.
Now the two different divisions are going to be run separately. The courses that are the equivalent to college level - the TVET division - is now to going to be re-launched under the well-known PC Training and Business College name.
This is the name that the company was known by when it was originally launched by Jay Ramnundlall 33 years ago. Jay will be leading the re-launched TVET brand again with the assistance of Sholina Durga as MD.
Market Research has shown that the PC Training and Business College Brand is equally powerful and has a great and deep acceptance in our rural and urban communities, corporate South Africa, SETA’s and government departments, alike. It is therefore not surprising that in carving out the TVET business unit into a standalone entity, Jay has decided to go back to PC Training's roots and capitalize on the powerful brand loyalty that “PC Training and Business College” brings to the table.
PC Training and Business College has many inner-city locations in major centres like Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban, Pretoria, Polokwane, and others.
Richfield will continue to offer a range of courses at the Higher Education and Training level - that is equivalent to courses offered at universities.
The company is confident that will the two different types of education operating separately they will be better able to communicate their offerings and both continue to improve their academic performance.
Richfield will soon be expanding their offerings by launching premium campuses in Centurion and New Town Junction.
