About Us

Who We Are

The Kafue Gorge Regional Training Centre (KGRTC), a registered trust in Zambia, is a well established institution controlled by a regional Board of Trustees (BOT) from Malawi, Eswatini, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe. KGRTC operates independently with 63 members of staff on its establishment.

KGRTC was established in 1989, with the support of Scandinavian donor funding, to provide competitive specialized training solutions in hydropower and related fields to electricity utilities in the Southern Africa Development Community (SADC) and Sub-Saharan regions. KGRTC is ISO 9001 certified and a Grade One registered institution with the Technical Education, Vocational and Entrepreneurship Training Authority (TEVETA). The Centre has been recognised by the Association of Power Utilities in Africa [APUA] as a Centre of excellence in Africa. KGRTC has also earned an international reputation for quality training and provision of excellent accommodation, catering and conference facilities.

KGRTC is situated in a tranquil environment in Namalundu, about one hundred (100) kilometres south of Lusaka and twenty-eight (28) kilometres off the Chirundu road, in the same vicinity as Zambia’s largest hydropower station i.e. Kafue Gorge Power Station. The unique location of the Centre away from the distraction of city life but within easy reach of a wide variety of social and sporting facilities creates a dynamic environment for study. Its location in a serene environment and the proximity of the mountains and gorges offer many opportunities for relaxation and out-door pursuits.
