Abstract

Despite a significant need, there is very little South African research on the validation of the generic training priorities of engineers within the platinum mining industry. The purpose of this study was to validate the generic training priorities of engineers in the platinum mining industry in three provinces in South Africa. For this study, a quantitative research design was used, a four-point Likert-type questionnaire was designed, and a purposive sample was used. The results of this study indicated that theoretical knowledge, technical skills, management skills, and engineering principles are generic training priorities.

Ondanks 'n betekenisvolle behoefte is daar min navorsing gedoen in Suid-Afrika oor die validering van generiese opleidingsprioriteite van ingenieurs in die platinum myn industrie. Die doel van die studie was om die geldigheid van die generiese opleidingsprioriteite van platinum myn ingenieurs te ondersoek in drie provinsies in Suid-Afrika. 'n Kwantitatiewe navorsingsmetode was gebruik, 'n vier-punt Likert-tipe vraelys was ontwikkel, en 'n doelgerigte steekproef was gebruik. Die resultate van die studie het getoon dat teoretiese kennis, tegniese vaardighede, bestuursvaardighede en ingenieursbeginsels die generiese opleidingsprioriteite is.
