Fastjet published on their blog that, each of the pilots had to complete and achieve a Tanzanian Professional Pilots Licence and they also received A319 ratings, meaning that they are now able to fly the fastjet's A319 fleet.  
A significant part of the training included attending A319 technical ground school.  Once the trainees passed this element of the programme, they then went onto complete their aircraft simulator training.  From beginning to end, the training takes 4 months to complete. 
The recruits that passed their licences with flying colours include:

  1. Abdulaziz Mandani
  2. Romit Parmar
  3. Arif Jinnah
  4. Abeid Mayoya
  5. Soud S Al-Toky
  6. Donald Msigwa
  7. Pirmohamed Mulla
  8. Maqbul Sange

Seven of the pilots who completed the training are Tanzanian and one was Kenyan. According to aviationtz records, 6 of the names on the list above  are ex- Precisionair pilots. 
Fastjet says they are entirely dedicated to a long term investment in pilot training.
