We envision a future where we contribute to the transformation of many lives through relevant course offering, excellent service, and training excellence to empower society as the training provider of choice within the Garden Route.


Umbono Training offers First Aid, Basic Life Support (BLS), Basic Fire Fighting, Health & Safety, various CPR and Snake Awareness courses conducted in alignment with the standards and guidelines set by industry accrediting bodies.

Our unique blend of course materials and multimedia, the use of the newest technologies and practical exercises in instructor led classes, allow clients to experience market leading training interventions.

Training events are conducted at our Training Centre in George, at our client’s premises when requested, or online using a variety of platforms.

Where possible, courses can be customised to suit specific needs and outcomes for skills required in almost any given workplace.

Company Background

In 2005, Umbono Training was born from a vision that First Aid training was for everyone. As our experience grew and relationships strengthened, we added to our course offering as our client’s needs changed. We gained accreditation in 2006 from the Department of Labour as a registered First Aid training provider. In 2009 we were awarded accreditation by Services SETA. 2018 saw Umbono Training qualify as a Resuscitation Council of South Africa accredited Training Centre. In 2019 Umbono Training was gained accreditation by TETA.

Clients have found a partner in Umbono Training that provides quality skills training that equips employees with skills to do their work successfully and professionally.

We have remained committed to presenting skills training that is relevant, empowering, and effective throughout the last 16 years.

In 2020 we took the opportunity to refresh and renew. We updated our company logo, website, and course materials. Remaining true to our belief that skills training is for everyone, we approached FP&M Seta and HWSETA to gain accreditation for a variety of new courses enabling us to better serve our clients.

We believe that everyone’s life can be changed, and that everyone can change a life… Share the Vision!
