SOME satellite television (TV) technicians and dealers across the country have received training in safety measures and latest installation trends.
SES HD PLUS, a satellite broadcast service provider and marketers of the HD+ TV service, organised the training.
A media release issued in Accra on April 25, said in the first quarter of this year, 2,500 installers in 18 locations were trained.
Since the launch of the HD+ brand in December 2020, the release said it had engaged about 6,000 installers and dealers so far in 50 towns and cities across the country.
“Training participants on the latest satellite TV installation trends is aimed at contributing to youth empowerment and job creation in the country,” it said.
The Director of SES HD PLUS, Theodore Asampong, said during the training session in Kumasi, the group recognised the need to imbibe a culture of safety amongst installers due to the risks associated with their job.
“Most of these satellite dealers and installers work at height and also with electrical wiring. This has informed our decision to distribute dustcoats to all participants of the training session. We are certain that apart from the safety that the dustcoats provide, it will also give them a more professional outlook as entrepreneurial service providers,” he said.
Mr Asampong said over 50,000 homes have embraced the FeeliFeeli experience from HD+, “therefore, by equipping our trade and installer partners with the requisite skills and information, we hope to have a team of experts who can remain gainfully employed by satisfying the needs of Ghanaian homes who want to enjoy world class TV viewing experiences at an affordable price.”
