Basic Level Courses

There are five Basic Level Courses:
  • Basic Level Tanning 
  • Basic Level Dyehouse
  • Basic Level Finishing
  • Introduction to the Leather Industry (3 month course)
  • Introduction to the Leather industry
The Basic Level Courses are run on Level 2 of the SAQA Qualifications Framework.

Each course is a one year course, with the exception of the 3 month Introduction to the Leather Industry Course.

The Basic Level Courses are distance education courses only i.e. there is no practical work associated with these courses.

These courses provide a low level of technical difficulty but provide a good foundation for further studies. They are often the first courses that students study with ISTT.
