INSTALLER TRAINING

The Ellies Installer School was established to support Ellies’ commitment to BBBEE and serve as a training academy for historically disadvantaged individuals.

Established in 2008, the training programme is geared towards equipping trainees with the knowledge and skills needed for the installation of Terrestrial TV and Satellite TV, PA and Audio/Video Security Systems.

Ellies then assists these upskilled beneficiaries by outsourcing work to them via our prepaid installation voucher system. It’s just another way that Ellies is trying to contribute to social upliftment in South Africa.
