Training and capacity building for clients


FDI Training Services

Wavteq is a leading specialist provider of training and capacity building for economic development organizations (EDOs) clients. We provide 3 levels of training:

  • eLearning through Wavteq Institute. EDO professionals can complete our FDI accreditation through our online platform. Our FDI certification programme is suitable for individuals wishing to learn or upgrade their FDI skills through to organizations which are rolling out training across their team. Current clients of Wavteq Institute include Caribbean Export, Dubai FDI and Select USA.
  • Customized training programmes. These face to face training sessions usually take place over 2-3 days and are developed with the client to meet their specific training needs. Wavteq’s senior team delivers the training on the client sites.
  • Longer term capacity building. As part of our development consulting work, we also work with organizations to support their capability development through longer term engagements. This usually involves secondment of a team member from several weeks to several months.
