About Southern Regional Training Centre

The Southern Regional Centre (SRTC) is the zone structural unit established and sanction by the PILAG Board and the Management to coordinate the public sector training in Central, Gulf, Western, Northern and Milne Bay Provinces in the country.

PILAG, then Papua New Guinea Institute of Public Administration (PNGIPA), was initially called the Administrative College (ADCOL) based at Konedobu. It was later moved to six (6) mile and finally in August 1967, relocated to its present site at Waigani. The institute’s inauguration as Administrative College was a result of efforts from Interim Council established and sanctioned by the Colonial Administration in 1963.

The SRTC structural establishment and operational inception was in 1967 and we are still in the business with a “never say no mentality”. Our legacies have lived on for years and still continues today with our trademark being present from the length and width of five provinces in the Southern Region.

The SRTC classrooms and learning facilities, as well as its accommodation facilities are currently being renovated and given a facelift to provide quality learning experience for its students.
