Emphasis is placed on the ongoing education, training and development of the Principals and Staff by training programmes, both internal and external. 

Technical staff receive on-the-job training and are continuously coached and mentored by the Principals and Senior Staff. 

DSV also employs students from the Cape Peninsula University of Technology for their one year in-service training period. These students are trained using an extensively documented training program to build their skills and confidence.   

Vacation employment and training during University holidays is offered to selected students, insofar as workload and resources permit.
