The KwaZulu-Natal Poultry Institute (KZNPI) is a private poultry training facility in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa. It was established in 1992 and is focused on training and mentoring poultry producers and their employees, ranging from subsistence farmers through to the staff of large integrated companies.
In 2004 the Institute and its training material were accredited by the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) and the AgriSETA. We proudly maintain these accreditations.
We have a full-time facilitator/assessor and we also use of the services of external subject matter experts for specialist courses.
Training facilities include lecture halls, a training farm (equipped with broiler, layer, rearing and breeder houses, as well as a hatchery), staff accommodation and administration offices. Delegates have the option of being accommodated at the KZNPI during their training.
The KZNPI offers a range of short courses in the main poultry production disciplines as well as in the peripheral skills of running a successful poultry enterprise. See Training for more information.
