“It feels good to be part of MTI as a student and am grateful for the bursary opportunity given to me by Marematlou Training Institute.  The Covid-19 pandemic has made it very frustrating to sit at home, as I’m anxious to continue learning more.”

– Mapaseka Mahloko (Course: IT Systems Development)

“Marematlou Training Institute has given me a second chance in life. I can’t believe it, especially the support I get here. I am glad  to be back after a tough lockdown because the more we stayed at home the more we got behind and could have possibly lost interest in studying; forgetting why we wanted the certificate in the first place.”

– Ntuka Puseletso (Course: IT Technical Support)
