Through Kishugu Training, an academy that offers a wide variety of courses, from wildland firefighting, to First Aid Training and Conservation and Tourism, a Driving School, Security Training and Early Childhood Development, they also envisioned a business school to create a platform for the people of our province to study various courses from Diplomas to skills programmes and in return create future business leaders through education excellence.
