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 conducts training courses during its calendar year as indicated in our training programme. We undertake to provide quality training that is relevant to the needs of our society. This we ensure by engaging well qualified and experienced instructors for each and every course we offer. As the National Standards Body we are proud to offer standards-based training that will help industry, commerce and the public sector to maximize their return on investment by understanding and implementing the Swaziland National Standards (SZNS).
Why train with us?
Because we have helped shape and develop many of the country’s leading standards, our expert knowledge means a lot, and when you train with us you benefit from this expertise. Government and regulators consult us before passing new laws and/or technical regulations, these are reflected in the standards that we develop. We also understand that business success starts with people. We have also trained many auditors who carry out these assessments and now we can take you from beginner to expert quickly – wherever you are on you learning journey, we can tailor training to you and your business needs.
