ONGWEDIVA, 13 SEP (NAMPA) - The Namibia Chamber of Commerce and Industry (NCCI)’s Northern Branch, in partnership with the Ongwediva Town Council and ProNet Namibia, will embark upon another business management training course for local entrepreneurs and business executives here this month.
This was announced by the executive committee of the NCCI Northern Branch in a media statement issued by its branch manager, Hertha Munkundi-Uushona on Wednesday.
“The upcoming training, which is developed and still supported by the German Society for International Co-operation (GIZ) acting on behalf of the German Government, will start on 30 September and carry SME owners and business executives through a programme of six sophisticated business management modules until the graduation on 23 November,” read the media statement.
This is the second ProNet Business Management Training for this year, following the first conducted some four months ago.
The NCCI Northern Branch's ProNet training was conducted for the first time in northern Namibia last year.
The media statement indicated that 57 business men and women have so far taken the opportunity to upgrade their knowledge and improve their products and services by graduating with this training programme since its implementation in 2012.
This training programme targets owners and managers of existing small and medium enterprises (SMEs) who are eager to improve their business performance productivity and profitability.
The training covers essential management topics like Production Management, Product and Service Development, Human Resource and Financial Management.
“The participants will face challenging tasks as well as inspiring assignments during the training, while the ProNet trainers closely observe and support the participants in introducing their newly gained knowledge into their own workplaces and enterprises,” highlighted the NCCI.
The outstanding feature of the training is that it alternates between some days of formal training (theory) and some weeks of practical implementation at the participants’ own businesses.
The training takes two or three months, and takes up to 25 participants per session.
Twenty-two people have already confirmed their participation.
