The Kafue Gorge Regional Training Centre employs a total of four fully qualified Academic Staff on full time basis. From time to time the Centre engages industry based professionals with outstanding experiences in their field of specialisation to work as Guest Lecturers. It is with this culture and background that the Centre will always endeavour to give participants the best Laboratory practicals, site visits and classroom lectures.
All Academic staff have excellent research capabilities and keep close ties with the hydropower community world wide, a strength reinforced by current links with outside organisations such as the International Centre for Hydropower (ICH) in Norway and the International Hydropower Association (IHA) in the United Kingdom.
