Authority, institute sign deal for staff training


THE Border Development Authority has signed a contract with the International Training Institute for training and up-skilling of its staff in Port Moresby yesterday.
The training was part of BDA’s capacity development component of the ‘Wutung pilot border trade and investment development project’.
Under the project, almost 400 staff have been undergoing training in various fields to enhance their skills, including impacted communities.
With the contract signed, ITI is grateful to extend its training services to the working professionals.
The institute would facilitate and deliver short training courses to 32 recipients including staff members of the BDA for 6 weeks.
“It’s good we start this partnership to build more human resource,” said ITI’s marketing manager, Semi Rose.
ITI was supportive as with other organisations like the UN Women who have also partnered with the institute for training purposes.
Under the contract ITI is happy to provide professional studies with the emphasis on their distance education programme that could help people who cannot access an education.
The aim is to train 500 before the project close in June where almost 400 staff have undergone trainings.
