Ceylon – German Technical Training Institute

The Ceylon – German Technical Training Institute (CGTTI) is the foremost institute in Sri Lanka for the training of skilled technicians in the field of Automobile Engineering and allied trades. The institute was originally estab- lished in 1959 at the premises of the central workshop of the Sri Lanka Transport Board at Werahera. This was a result of an agreement entered into between the government of the Federal Republic of Germany and Sri Lanka in 1958 to supply trained Technicians in the maintenance of the bus fleet, which belonged to the Sri Lanka Transport Board.The Institute was shifted to Moratuwa in 1974 and re-named as the Ceylon-German Technical Training Institute. It was originally set up and managed by a German Director and his German staff until February, 1976. Then its management was handed over to Sri Lanka, under a Director /Principal and local Staff. At present, The CGTTI comes under the purview of the Ministry of Skills Development & Vocational Training.
