Training for Communications Department

15 Dec,2016Training

The Working on Fi re Communications Department hosted its annual departmental training from 7 to 11 November 2016.

Among the attendees were Community Awareness Training Officers (CATOs) and Fire Awareness Training Officers (FATOs) – who received training in Project Management from Twasa Training Academy, and Communications Officers, Video Journalists, a Communications Coordinator as well as an Editor – who received training in online video journalism from the Institute for the Advancement of Journalism.

“My overall experience and overview of the training we received this week is very interesting. In particular, the project management course we did is going to help us improve the projects that we currently do. This training has definitely cleared up certain things. It was a great experience getting to know our new colleagues that recently joined the Communications Department,” says Rudi Lucas, Western Cape FATO.

“The training was awesome and it helped us to determine the different dynamics of a project and the different expectations required in the commencement and closure of a project. This was beneficial to us as CATOs because it will enable us to produce great projects in our provinces in terms of our community fire awareness workshops. What we learned this week we will be giving back to the communities we work with,” says Wongama Copiso, Eastern Cape CATO.

With this training, the Communications Department will be better equipped to achieve its key organisational communications goals and objectives.
