Fazi Rail Academy is a professional entity offering skills development and training services in railway.
The company is 100% black-woman owned and is BBBEE Level 1 in terms of the BBBEE Act of South Africa. Fazi Rail Academy was established in 2018 with the intention of offering clients professional services in skills development and training.
Historically and currently, the railway industry has been riddled with the shortage of skills in all its various disciplines and this has led Fazi Rail to explore the field of skills development and training. Our programmes aim to address the critical and scarce skills within the railway environment.
Fazi Rail Academy specializes in career guidance for transport careers, railway training and curriculum development. We pride ourselves in focusing on developing the skills of Africa. We believe in the premise that Africans are best positioned to have a deep understanding of the needs of Africans in ensuring a holistic development of its railways. We also offer customised in-house training for all our training programmes.
