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 2022 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 qualifications carry accreditation with our own Academic Board and registering authorities in the Cook Islands. We also have programmes accredited by international accrediting bodies with the New Zealand Qualifications Authority. We are working alongside our partner in NZ at the Eastern Institute of Technology (EIT), Skills Consulting Group and BCITO.

This year we have expanded our portfolio to include a range of courses which fall under accredited and non-accredited courses. We have a division called Business Partnerships which caters for upskilling, and short courses. This includes delivery to all industries and services training that is relevant to your needs and requests. The concept of upskilling allows industries to engage their employees in customised training packages from us that are contextual to your needs.

Continuing education programmes continue to run in Rarotonga and Pa Enua (Our Outer Islands). We have also collaborated with schools in the Southern Group to establish trades and hospitality learning programmes for secondary school and adult students.

We encourage you all to take advantage of these programmes and engage and enjoy the lifelong learning journey. 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 2022 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 2022.
