The CTP is an intensive five-day (5) course which has often been offered by CEA in collaboration with Higher Education Institutions (HEI) and with the South African Property Owner Association (SAPOA). The course is structured to satisfy the needs of many property practitioners who have entered the industry via routes other than specific training and education in the built environment. Many persons, who are responsible for the erection, maintenance, redevelopment, facilities management, project management, etc. of existing buildings and building projects, actually never had the opportunity to undergo much needed structured training or education in building construction technology. This dilemma is addressed by offering the CTP to provide the opportunity to enhance technology knowledge.

The structure and contents of the CTP cover a wide variety of knowledge areas, with the prime objective to foster a knowledge base and adequate information to address technical issues. Guidance regarding the way buildings are “put together” and how they function are given, making it possible to take responsible technical decisions, not having to rely only on the judgement of others. Comprehensive study material is provided and presented by expert lecturers and professional practitioners in the built environment. It is done by way of formal lectures, group work, discussion groups and case studies. Extensive use is made of drawings, diagrams, sketches, etc.

Sharpen up your technological knowledge base and enhance your decision making and execution skills.

Structure & Contents

The following topics, supported by suitable study material are dealt with:
• Soil mechanics and foundations
• Construction technology
• Cement and concrete
• Electrical equipment and services
• Mechanical equipment and services
• Plumbing installations: Water supply, sewerage and drainage
• Building services
• Passive environmental control
• Intelligent buildings, energy efficiency and “green” technology
• Pest control
• Maintenance work
• Regulatory environment

As part of our ongoing quality assurance, candidates take part in the following:
• A short open book “Knowledge Gained Survey” on the final day of the programme
• Compilation and submission of a practical and own workplace applicable assignment two months after completion of the course.
• The course content is extensive, but delegates receive comprehensive study material for utilisation when preparing the assignment, and or future career development.


A certificate of completion is issued to delegates who have taken part in the knowledge survey and completed the assignment successfully. A certificate of attendance is issued to other delegates. In terms of the Higher Education Quality Committee (HEQC) Framework for Delegated Functions, Higher Education Institutions (HEI) have the authority to quality assure its own Short Learning Programmes (SLPs) and the certification is thus also SAQA compliant.

Who should attend?

Persons with insufficient technical knowledge, who are involved in the property industry, facilities management, construction work and the built environment in general, benefit immensely from the CTP. Being a technological programme, it is equally suitable for, and aimed at both the private and the public sectors.

Comments from delegates who attended previous CTP courses facilitated by CEA
• Very informative and eye opening.
• Well-structured for individuals with no construction background.
• Good overview of the subjects.
• Highly knowledgeable on subject matter.
• Practical hands-on experience in the field.
Accommodation and transport are for your own account. A list of suitable accommodation in different price ranges is available on request. All the course material, refreshments and lunch are included in the course fee.
