Technical Training

Training plays a vital role within JA Delmas teams: for both you and us, it is a guarantee of people’s safety. It is also a guarantee that the work will be carried out in line with best practices and within optimal conditions for use and productivity.


By adapting to the different training requirements of our technical teams, our courses are organized into three main groups, depending on the context of the trainees and their assignments. Depending on the circumstances, these courses are taught in our training centers or on your operating sites.

  • Basic modules
    Trainees will acquire the knowledge and skills required to effectively and intelligently service and carry out work on your Cat machines.
  • Specific modules
    These aim to develop the knowledge acquired in basic modules, in particular the ability to diagnose, master new technologies and keep up to date with developments in our products.
  • Operators’ modules
    These courses provide the knowledge and skills to enable machines to be operated in an optimal manner and complete safety. For greater efficiency, it is preferable that these modules be taught on the job site, with your own equipment and in actual working conditions.


Opened in October 2013, the Mathieu Lindor Regional Training Center in Abidjan is the very symbol of the energy and emphasis assigned to training within JA Delmas and the companies of the Network.

The issues of developing and improving teams’ skills are at the heart of our strategy. Everything is available on site to achieve this: both technical and teaching resources, always with a view to operational efficiency:

  • Individualized coaching
  • Adapted training plans
  • Simulators and tools specifically for training
  • Computer labs and a proving ground
  • Partnership with local technical schools

In addition to the Regional Training Center in Abidjan, dedicated centers serving national requirements are located in Burkina Faso, Mauritania and Mali. In addition, our expert trainers, specialized in Caterpillar machines and systems, operate in all countries of West Africa.

A JAD Academy to build Our Future

In preparation for the future, JA Delmas is investing in training and has set itself the ambition of becoming the Employer of Choice in Africa and the Training Partner for our customers.

The JAD Academy based in Abidjan embodies an ambitious vision: that of meeting the enormous training needs of customers in Africa.

The aim is to supplement the training curricula provided by schools in Africa, and so help to prepare young people for technical roles across all industrial sectors.

The JAD Academy also includes components offering commercial and language training, and a component focused on career development and progression.
