Abstract
In this day and age where technology is rapidly improving and developing, it is essential that information should be managed accurately, fast and dynamic. Information systems not adhering to the requirements of the environment must be replaced or updated. Dependable, available information is worth its value in gold to individuals, organisations and the government. Training information is one of the most controversial themes of our times, because of the dynamic nature of this field. The question is what is available in the market to manage training in its entirety? Legislation in South Africa has certain expectations and requirements, which have to be adhered to.

A training management system that will satisfy the needs of individuals, organisations and the government is designed and developed to address the problems experienced by Sasol Utilities. Abbreviations such as SAQA, NQF, NSB and SETA are used generally and are an integral part of the training problem. The Computer Assisted Training Management System is designed to address the development possibilities of certain job categories and individuals. This includes the.management of all training information such as historical background, scheduling, the determination of certain short comings and achievement evaluation. Various reports, which are valuable for management purposes can be generated.

The Computer Assisted Training Management System is designed in such a way that it can be adapted to suit a variety of needs. Information can be added, changed or deleted according to the specific needs. However, information can only be changed as determined by the administrator. A built in security system ensures that the integrity of the information is maintained and protected.

The idea behind the design and development of the Computer Assisted Training Management System is that the system must be user friendly, dynamic, unique and functional and that it must comply with all the technical aspects. The need for training differs from institution to institution, as well as from the requirements laid down by the government. This system is therefore designed in such a way that it would not become obsolete in the near future. In fact, follow-up systems may originate from the current Computer Assisted Training Management System. The Computer Assisted Training Management System is therefore a dynamic and unique management tool for the processing of training information and is able to adapt to changing circumstances, without forfeiting integrity.
