The mission of the Swaziland Standards Authority (SWASA) is to promote quality principles and facilitate the use of standards to reduce technical barriers to trade and investment, ensure a sustainable Swazi economy and safeguard the nation’s health, safety and environment. An essential component to fulfilling this mission can be traced directly to one of the Authority’s functions to “encourage or undertake educational work in connection with standardization and quality” as provided in its founding Act. Through its Training Unit, SWASA will be conducting courses during the 2017 calendar year as indicated in this training programme.

We undertake to provide quality training that is relevant to the needs of our society. This we will ensure by engaging well qualified and experienced instructors for each and every course we offer.
