Training for Public Officers

APPLICATION PROCESS


The Public Service Academy (PSA) offers training services to Public Officers.

The schedule for training by the PSA is sent to the Permanent Secretaries of all Ministries.

This information is then circulated with the divisions of the ministries and individuals are nominated for training. Once this information is forwarded to PSA applicants will be registered for their courses according to the availability of space.

Should a Ministry wish to request a specific course, the Permanent Secretary or the assigned liaison is asked to contact the PSA representative assigned to their ministry so that relevant arrangements can made when possible.
