Consular Affairs Training

SADI has developed unique Tailor-Made courses especially for the Embassy, Consulate, Diplomatic Office, and Ambassador Residences worldwide. The courses are meant to enhance the overall functioning of a consulate by training a selected group of its staff members. A tailor-made training program is designed to meet specific needs identified by the requesting organisation. The duration of training courses varies between one and three weeks.

SADI is keen to engage and support Consulates in their fiscal oversight role in ensuring that there is accurate integration between human resource development and strategic and operational planning functions. We look at the Functional training for the staff of various consulates in South Africa.
