Cape access have trained trainers that train the community.

The Waboomskraal community was in a very festive mood when 11 of their members were awarded ICDL and E-Learner certificates by Cape Access. The top E-Learner student, Matheus Fortuin got a mark of 86% and the two top candidates in ICDL was intern, Janco Minnaar with 96% and Jessica Plaatjies with 90%. 

There are 70 Cape Access centres across the Western Cape and 19 of those are situated in the Eden District.  In George  there are a centres at Thembalethu Thusong Centre and Waboomskraal Thusong Centre.
