It is with great pleasure that ,I warmly welcome you to the Zambia Air Services Training Institute (ZASTI) official Website. ZASTI is a quasi-government Institution under the Ministry of Transport and Communication, regulated by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and accredited to Technical Education, Vocational and Entrepreneurship Training Authority (TEVETA). The Institute is a proud TRAINAIR PLUS Associate member of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) TRAINAIR PLUS programme.
ZASTI was established four years after the country’s attainment of political independence (1968), with the sole aim of meeting the local middle level human resource demands of the Aviation industry, which was then dominated by expatriates. Since then the institute has not only continued to fulfill this role, but has expanded and opened its doors to foreign students as well. The Institute offers competitive programs and its graduates occupy senior and responsible positions in both the aviation and non-aviation industry.
Hence to meet the growing demand for human resource in the aviation industry, ZASTI has a continuous expansion programme, and has now introduced a new diploma course in Avionics. The institution will also soon introduce courses on Open Distance and Flexible Learning.
ZASTI operates with a clear vision of being the center of excellence in aviation training in sub-Sahara. It is in this light, that the institution strives to maintain the necessary training standards as required by Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and Technical Education, Vocational and Entrepreneurship Training Authority (TEVETA).
