The National Certificate in Driver Training Instructor (All Classes), a BQA registered national qualification, is designed for persons who intend to work in the Driver Training industry as a driver trainer, assessor or moderator, said Mr Modisaemang, Managing Director.

Out of one thousand driving instructors currently active in Botswana, less than fifteen are female! Therefore, as part of this initiative, EA991 is promoting accessibility of women into the Driver Training Industry and the majority of successful applicants will be women, to meet our objective of pairing female learner drivers to female instructors, said Modisaemang.

The EA991 Driving Academy will institute a performance bond post training, so that we engage the successful applicants within our institute to gain experience, with the view of providing them with employment opportunities.  EA991 is committed to build the next generation of professional driver trainers in order to provide driver training instruction that is in line with the BQA and DRTS requirements. We want to instil a safety conscious driver attitude which ultimately will produce efficient and safe drivers on Botswana’s Roads” concluded Modisaemang.
