Training Centre


ETDA believes that by delivering grassroots training courses we are contributing to the development of Timor Leste's human resources. ETDA training courses are developed with the needs of the workplace in mind. They are continually evaluated and up-dated through industry consultation and trainee feedback.

Customised Training
