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.


The course is designed to prepare DStv installers with practical and theoretical knowledge and skills used in the broadcasting industry and to formalise existing installers’ knowledge of the DStv products, standards and applications to enhance their effectiveness in the field

The Intermediary Level 2 training course consists of the following modules:

  • Fundamentals of RF
  • Decoder basics
  • Measurement equipment
  • Installer application
  • Customer service
  • DStv products
  • Practical installations

The duration of the course is 3 days. We can accommodate 20 students per course. Lunch will be provided.
