Welcome to SA Coffin Training
Secure employment
Many of us have spent our precious time and money looking for and trying different ways to establish a successful business and earning a lucrative income. With the current Aids, swine flu and killer TB epidemic in Africa the demand for coffins and caskets are huge. Get a job with an existing manufacturer or start your own coffin and casket making business.

We will provide you with the necessary coffin and casket training, tuition and skills to start your own coffin and casket manufacturing business, or secure employment with an existing manufacturer. With us you can learn how to manufacture coffins and caskets or you can simply become a distributor of coffins and caskets, i.e buy inexpensive products directly from the factory, add on your mark-up and resell to the public. You could make a profit of 100% and more on some of the products. You can either attend a training workshop in Kempton Park or purchase a pre-made do-it-yourself kit. If you can work with carpentry tools then you can simply get our training manuals, which is the most cost effective option of getting your business up and running. The manuals cover the entire manufacturing process from A to Z including pictures, diagrams, sizes, patterns, etc.
