Advocating Employer Participation to complete merSETA survey –

Dear (RMI) ARA Member,


Trust you’re keeping well on this cold Friday!


The Retail Motor Industry Organisation (RMI) is a major employer stakeholder to the Manufacturing, Engineering and Related Services Sector Education Training Authority (merSETA), since the inception of the Sector Education Training Authorities (SETAs) in the South African skills landscape.


RMI members, bar the South African Petroleum Retailers Association (SAPRA) membership (falling within the ambit of the Wholesale and Retail Sector Education and Training Authority – W&RSETA), that can participate in this survey are typically those businesses in the automotive aftermarket including the repair and maintenance, sales and support services, as well as in the components manufacturing sectors.


This merSETA survey is aimed at employers to better understand the impact that the pandemic has had on the firms in the Manufacturing, Engineering and Related Services Sectors so that skills planning and services are adequately considered given the current state of the sector. 


This survey will run until 15 June 2020.  The questions are short and the surveys should take a maximum of 15 minutes each to complete. Please click on the link below (also to be found in the subject line) to open the survey, your participation as an industry stakeholder will come highly regarded. Thank you
