As indicated earlier in this overview not all training is undertaken at institutions that have been especially set up for training. A great deal of job-specific training is undertaken in-house and on-the-job by most of the larger employers in training centres developed within each organization and with their own certified training officers. Such organizations as the Public Service Commission through the Government Training Centre, Air Pacific Limited, Fiji Electricity Authority, Carpenters Fiji Limited, Civil Aviation Authority of Fiji, Air Terminal Services, Eastern Manufacturing Group (a group of six companies) and Fiji Sugar Corporation are examples of organizations which carry out their own job-specific training in certain skill areas in-house.
In all in-house training programmes the FNTC features prominently in covering the cost of training from a grant of funds up to 90 per cent of the value of the levy paid to the FNTC for training, and in the provision of resource personnel from the Industry Training Boards to help with the training.
