PBS College started in 1982 as a husband and wife team – Pieter & Christine Jordaan. Over the next three decades, they worked tirelessly for the Credit Management Community. They both served on the management committees for the ICM SA, ICM Africa, UICM and ADRA. Both Pieter and Christine are hailed as “South African Icons” in Credit Management.
In the late 1990’s PBS College started branching into General Management Training, and slowly started building a reputation as Leadership Development experts. Their facilitators started being sought after by other major training and education companies, and PBS College were approached by Universities and Technicons to design their course syllabus and write learner and facilitator guides. PBS College was instrumental in many courses offered by UNISA, UJ, Milpark Education and Damelin.
Pieter unexpectedly passed away in 2007, leaving his family, friends, collegues and learners feeling the impact of losing a legend. His wife, Christine, miraculously kept her head high and threw herself into her business and her clients. She pulled in additional facilitators and started broadening the horizons and spectrum of services the company offers.
One of the facilitators she started using more regularly, was her daughter, Christelle Bure. Christelle has built a reputation as a management consultant, with past employers including Ernst & Young, First Rand, SAB, and Computer Associates. Christelle has a passion for Personal Development and Process. By the time she was appointed as a Director with PBS College in 2012, PBS College’s core focus had started shifting to encompass Project Management, Entrepreneurship, Business Management, Risk Management and Leadership Development.
All PBS College courses are based on SAQA Certifications, and every course is aligned to SAQA regulations, and to bring personal development into the life of every working person. Their formal Accreditation is through FASSET, and they proudly became registered as the only FASSET registered college for the 57901 Certificate in Credit Management.
