Discover a whole new way you can treat yourself to high quality education and training! The VTDI is the institution you can trust to provide education and training programmes designed especially with you in mind. Quality assured, standards-driven, highly trained faculty, user-friendly curricula and course outlines, individual consultations and support, are all neatly wrapped in a competency based, student centred environment.
The VTDI (Main Campus) is located in the lush, quiet surroundings on the Gordon Town Road, Kingston 6, nestled in the valley below Jacks Hill and providing a picturesque view of the bustling, beautiful landscape of the country’s capital city of Kingston. It is just right for persons wanting high quality higher education and a place of study away from the hustle and bustle of city life, but near enough to shopping facilities that will serve their need for basic supplies. The University Hospital is just minutes away and can serve your medical needs in any emergency. Papine, one of the city’s chief commuter access points, is just 10 minutes walking distance from the college, (5 minutes by taxi or bus) and you have easy access to transport at the end of your day or class sessions to your home anywhere in and outside of Kingston.
The Mandeville extension site was established in January 2005 with approximately twenty (20) students and one (1) administrative assistant. Similar to the model currently used in Montego Bay, this site was initially accommodated at facilities utilized by the Management Institute for National Development (MIND) in Mandeville. As the student population grew and the programmes increased, the site was relocated in September 2010.
The present location of the Mandeville extension site is the third and largest site since the inception of VTDI Mandeville. The site currently offers a variety of short/customized courses and four programmes: The Associate Degree in ICT, the TVET Instructor’s Diploma, the Postgraduate Diploma in Education and Training, and the Bachelor of Education in Applied Technology.
The Montego Bay extension site was established in August 2003 at Caribbean Institute of Technology (CIT) with approximately twenty (25) students, one (1) administrative assistant and 1 lab technician.

The programme currently offered from this site is the Post Graduate Diploma in Education and Training.
