Training

CMO has its roots in the training sector and this will continue to remain the flagship division of the company. Except for the very unique skill set that the company has developed in machine operator training (including the extensive use of simulators during training), CMO offers all training required in a forestry company from the forest worker, to the Chief Executive. Along with its vision for the future, CMO is currently well positioned and actively working towards adding value to clients operating in the wider African market.

We are the only service provider in Africa that has developed key training competencies to ensure that operator training is taken to a new level when the CMO instructors assess and train machine operators.
CMO also retains its well established training in fire management.
