About Artisan Training Institute


"Developing a passion for learning,
empowering individuals to rise to the task."


The company was established in 1982 as a subsidiary of the Anglo-Alpha Group of Companies; In February 1999, the company became Ikhaya Fundisa Techniskills Academy (IFTA).

In April 2008, IFTA was purchased by new owners and new management took control. The quality and scale of operations changed substantially during this period, which prompted the need to rebrand as the Artisan Training Institute (ATI) in October 2012; During 2012, the trades MC & I, and rigging was launched in Roodepoort.

ATI currently operates from Roodepoort, Crown Mines (in association with Toolquip & Allied), Port Shepstone (in association with Natal Portland Cement) and in Hartbeesfontein. Three additional sites are being planned in South Africa, in conjunction with blue chip customers with whom ATI is proudly associated.
