 Companies, factories, NGOs, government institutions and the private sector have been facing a crisis in managing their activities. As a result, production has suffered, causing poor service to their customers, poor handling of equipment and properties, lack of morale in production, and at times a laissez-faire attitude towards work.  This has led some businesses to close their firms or operate at a loss.

 St. Augustine University of Tanzania (SAUT) through its programme of short courses comes to your rescue by offering courses for your workers and staff that will enable you to make changes for your business or related activity. All our training programmes aim at developing job-related skills to ensure that participants utilise their own experiences and relate the newly acquired skills to their own situation.  SAUT is experienced in conducting short courses that are client oriented.  We serve our clients according to their needs and desires.  And we have been doing that for the past forty years.




Our courses aim at imparting new skills and techniques to our clients to assure their best performance. We also provide opportunities for our clients, however well trained they are, to keep abreast of current knowledge and skills relevant to their job.
