Internal auditing on an ongoing basis ensures compliance with the management system and also allows for external audits to be completed without any non-conformances.

Plate-fitter / boilermaker and welder training courses
Belmet Marine hosts a MerSeta-accredited training centre for plate-fitters / boilermakers and welders. In September 2008 MerSeta recognised this training centre as a one of the top training facilities in the Western Cape. Since then, Belmet Marine has taken on candidates for learnerships and apprenticeships, as well as for the Accelerated Artisan Training Program (AATP). The latter allows candidates to graduate with a technical senior certificate that is formally endorsed by MerSeta.
Steel fabrication services in Namibia
Belmet has recently opened a fully fledged subsidiary company in Walvis Bay, Namibia, which was established to cater for the ever-increasing work capacity in Walvis Bay. A new 1,200m² fabrication facility will be completed by April 2010, which will have overhead crane capacity, welding and cutting capabilities – basically a smaller version of the Cape Town branch.
