GFP International’s mission is to raise the construction and industrial workforce skills in Africa to world class standards by making strategic investments in human capital.
Training Tomorrow’s Skilled Workforce
Trade School Technology Transfer
With a history in Africa that dates to 2005, GFP International is partnering with vocational schools, instructors, governments, and industries across Africa to update facilities and modernize industrial training programs for thousands of aspiring individuals wanting to learn a trade with the skills to meet the demands of industrial development. With a focus on certified industrial welding, high voltage electrical, and instrumentation training, our programs will help ensure success for projects in oil and gas, mining, power generation, manufacturing, and infrastructure development over the coming decades.
GFP International is a mission and goal driven organization. Outside of South Africa, there are no certified welding schools in the African sub-continent. One of our first strategic goals is to support the development of certified welding schools in Tanzania and Sub-Saharan Africa. With these schools established, our next goal is to work with our partners to produce 5,000 industrial welders who are internationally certified by the year 2027.

We invite all Africans and your institutions to engage with us in this broad movement to raise the bar on industrial skills on the continent, the most important growth region in the world for the coming decades. We bring a commitment to import the highest and best technical vocational education technologies and practices that can be found
