One of the key goals of SAAFFI is to benefit its Members and, in fact, all-comers, by offering industry-focused education and training.


A SAAFFI Precise Short Training Course (PSTC) gives attendees a good overview of the subject covered. The set-up encourages interaction between the attendees and facilitator, for which reason numbers are limited. The subject of each course is focused and presented by an expert in that field. PSTCs offer an inexpensive training option, and ensure that attendees are not away from their work for more than half a day.
