Commercial Advancement Training Scheme

The Commercial Advancement Training Scheme (CATS) is a two-year programme providing dual training to both school leavers and employees wanting to further their professional careers.

CATS is a registered section 21 company - not for gain. It is a private initiative by the Namibian industry and currently consists of 21 member companies.

​CATS students are employed by one of the CATS member companies for two years. During this time they receive both practical and theoretical training. Practical training consists of on-the-job training at the company for four days a week, while another one and a half days are dedicated to theoretical training which is offered at NUST. On-the-job training means the trainee will rotate through different departments of the business under the guidance of a CATS mentor and supervisor. Theoretical training consists of education in business administration subjects by a training provider, currently the Namibia University of Science and Technology.
