International Training Institute (ITI) PNG

ITI was established in March 1999 to provide affordable and quality education for the people of Papua New Guinea. It started at the rented office space in Ori Lavi Haus in Boroko NCD with two rooms one being the office and another room being a computer lab with seven computers.

ITI initially offered certificate courses in computing and had its first intake with 30 students in 1999. It gradually moved to bigger premises within Ori Lavi Haus due to an increase in student numbers. 

Within 3 years ITI had also established an institute affiliation with Queensland Institute Business and Technology (QIBT) to offer the Certificate IV program in Business.

ITI has established another affiliation with the University of Southern Queensland within a short period to offer a first-year bachelor's degree program in business. 

This arrangement helped us to gain experience in the way the Australian system of education is managed. This in turn led us to improve our internal process and our quality for the future.

ITI PNG aims and objectives

ITI aims to provide education at the doorstep and this led us to provide education in other centres that are rarely visited by other private institutes in PNG.

With this in mind, ITI opened our first campus in Lae in 2004 due to demand in the other parts of PNG. ITI went on to establish 11 student centres in PNG.

ITI is accredited with DHERST 

ITI was granted full institute accreditation by the Ministry for Higher Education, Research Science, and Technology in the year 2013.

The enrollment number of students surpassed the 1,000 milestone in 2003 whilst in the year 2017, the number of students exceeded 4,000.

In 2018, ITI introduced a new Higher Diploma program and the duration of the study is for 2 years. These programs are approved by the Department of Higher Education Science and Technology (DHERST).
