Development Training International (Dti) is a regional organization within SADC and headquartered in the Kingdom of Swaziland. The institution is duly registered and incorporated in Swaziland under the Business Registration Act for Incorporated Companies Act of 1912 (Section 7). By virtue of the authority granted under the powers of the act, we are legally and lawfully permitted to conduct capacity building programmes in line with the Board of Directors’ mandate. The institution’s registration number is R/76333 and its licence is renewed yearly under strict compliance with its objectives stipulated in its Articles and Memorandum of Association as a regulatory mechanism.
As a full member of SADC, Swaziland holds the protocol as the destination of training for all member states within the region, and this perfectly places our institution as the base for absorbing delegates within the block. By this recognition and acceptance, many ministries, whose list is included in their brief, have unequivocally destined almost all their training requirements to Dti over the past years.
Since then, our impact within the SADC region has widened to include development training programmes across Africa and beyond.
Our challenge in this millennium is to be part of the premier training frontier for the delivery of customized and effective training methodologies for the region and the continent.
Dti training policies are guided by both national and international training policy standards. These are:
- To achieve a progressive public and private sector.
- To facilitate the development of an administrative group of experts, who are skilful, efficient and advanced, in line with scientific development and technique of management.
- To achieve efficiency and productivity in corporate organizations.
- To achieve an equitable administration of training for all in the private and public sectors in line with national, regional and international training policy.
- To provide fair and equitable training opportunities for all our clients and stakeholders in development training.
