Public Enterprises Minister Malusi Gigaba has confirmed that almost one-third of artisans, technicians and engineers at Eskom are approaching retirement.
To avert the approaching skills crisis, the state utility has invested R780 million in training over the last financial year.
Gigaba told a gathering of black professionals in Durban that Eskom had established 24 training centres.
More than 5 000 young people will be put into training in the near future.
