Personal message

Hi there! My name is Karl Hansen, I am a father, husband and also a student, but before you read on I firstly want to thank you for visiting my page and I hope my story will be of great interest to you.

You see, I have been in and out of contractual jobs for about 8 years and have had a fair share of disappointments along the way. A year and a half ago I decided to go back to school and have since been doing Industrial Engineering through the University of South Africa, and, I must say it was probably the best decision of my life.

Recently I was accepted by Cranefield College to do an Advance Diploma in Project Management as a second supplementary qualification that combines industry knowledge and skill to an Industrial Engineer. Project Management is one of the fastest growing demands currently and this qualification is fully endorsed by the Project Management Institute, PMI® and the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK).

To further enhance my skill, I am also currently doing a Professional Lean Six-Sigma Certificate through EdX in collaboration with the Technical University of Munich, Germany, that is fully recognized by the American Society of Quality (ASQ). Upon completion I will be granted access to write the world renowned Six-Sigma Green Belt Certification exam.

Education has no limits and aside from the above there is a Scrum Training Certification taking place this coming September 2019, which is offered by ThinkAgile SA, and this 2 day course is yet again fully endorsed by the Scrum Alliance® and this will grant me access to write and complete a Professional Certificate as Scrum Master.

It must sound all too much but I believe that if one wants to be outstanding and extraordinary you have to commit to the impossible.

So where will your donations go. The funds raised will go directly toward my studies; paying for the course, supplementary courses, a laptop, study materials etc, and the breakdown is as follows:

R  76,600.00   will be paid directly to Cranefield College for Tuition Fees

R  18,200.00   will be paid directly to Incredible Connection for Computer Equipment

R  12,400.00   will be paid directly to Think Agile for Scrum Training

R   4,400.00    will be paid directly to EdX for Six-Sigma Training, and 

R  13,400.00   will be retained for other costs (i.e travelling & study materials)

R 125,000.00  TOTAL

Your kind gesture will certainly help me to position myself to gain access to greater job prospects, and ultimately provide a better quality of life for my family and I cannot wait to share my achievements at the end of the day.

Thank you for your Donations and God bless. Karl
