Duane Genders has been involved in the scaffolding industry since 1987, joining Form-scaff (a leading national scaffold and formwork company) in East London, and later progressing to branch manager of their Pietersberg branch (now Polokwane). In addition to his exposure to scaffolding specifically, Duane also designed formwork layouts for concrete related environments, thereby equipping him in all facets of scaffolding and formwork.

Later, Duane established his own scaffolding company, D.G. Contracting, and served the Eastern Cape area specializing in formwork and scaffolding erection. D.G. Contracting soon became the “preferred” supplier to many large organizations because of their skill and commitment to safety.

In 2005 Duane started The Training Academy, a scaffold training specialist company, and was contracted as the preferred training supplier to Waco Africa, an international holding company (owning SGB-Cape and Form-scaff), taking care of their training needs nationally. Duane has also trained for various companies throughout Africa. His travels have taken him to Egypt, Morocco, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Namibia, Tanzania, Madagascar, DRC, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Malawi, Ghana, Zambia and throughout South Africa. Furthermore, Duane has also been called on to assist with investigations relating to scaffolding fatalities to determine the cause of failure.

Because of the immense demand for skills development, Duane sold D.G. Contracting to focus exclusively on training, also broadening its scope of training to include working at heights, formwork and all other scaffold related programs.

Duane is certified by CETA (Construction and Education Training Authority), as a qualified Assessor and Moderator.
