Kia Orana and welcome to the Cook Islands Tertiary Training Institute (CITTI), the vocational training centre of the Cook Islands. It gives me great pleasure to present you with the 2018 prospectus. The Cook Islands Tertiary Training Institute aims to be a leader in the provision of relevant, innovative and versatile programmes and training models that enhance educational and cultural outcomes for our students. The success of our students is the primary focus for our organisation and we aim to support every student that chooses to study with us so that they reach their full potential.

We have a wide variety of programmes being offered in Rarotonga. These carry accreditation with our own Academic Board and registering authorities in the Cook Islands in addition to programmes accredited by international accrediting bodies in the form of London City & Guilds and the New Zealand Qualifications Authority.
Continuing education programmes continue to run in Mangaia, Aitutaki, Atiu, Penrhyn and Pukapuka. We have also collaborated with schools in the southern group to establish trades and hospitality learning programmes for secondary school and adult students.

You will also see contained in this prospectus an array of very popular community education programmes. We encourage you all to take advantage of these programmes and engage and enjoy the lifelong learning journey.

On that note, all of the courses included in this prospectus offer opportunities for you to develop new skills. Many recognise that skill development with internationally recognised qualifications. For others, the satisfaction comes from knowing they have learnt something new.
Please look through the prospectus and the range of programmes we have on offer in 2018 and identify what you may be interested in. You might also like to encourage your friends, family and colleagues to join you on this educational journey.

We look forward to seeing you at the Cook Islands Tertiary Training Institute in 2018.
