AT Centre

Here at the National Appropriate Technology Centre we have a new training venue that is a little different, and we think a little better than the rest. It does not provide hotel type accommodation, western style food or easy access to shops, clubs and bars [please note that we do not allow alcohol in the centre] that may distract your course participants.
It does however provide inexpensive shared accommodation, good PNG style food and an environment that is safe, quiet and promotes learning. It also provides your participants with the opportunity to see and use a range of technologies that are being promoted by ATprojects in its many rural development programs.
Located about 20 minutes outside of Goroka (and a 35 minute pleasant walk to the Mt. Gahavisuka National Park), the centre can accommodate 24 people (we can fit in a few more!), with a large classroom / meeting area and spacious dinning area. Set in the heart of beautiful surroundings the building demonstrates many of the technologies and materials used at the centre. For example the building is supplied with electricity 24 hours a day by the centre’s pico hydro power plant,
Also if required it is also possible to hire our well equipped workshop to support the more practical aspects of a training program. We are also able to help you run your training by providing experienced trainers in a number of areas, for more information just contact us when making your booking. So if you are looking for a training venue that is away from the noise and distractions of an urban environment, our facility could be what you are looking for.
Tour at the AT Centre 
ATprojects normally have visitors at its centre in Nagamiza nearly every week. Most of these visitors come mainly because they are interested to see and learn about the various projects and programs ATprojects is involved in when carrying out its community development programs. Pictured are provincial health officials from Madang who travelled the Highlands Highway from Madang to Goroka to visit the ATprojects Centre. ATprojects Co-director Steve Layton is seen giving the visitors a tour at the Centre.

Fibre Glass Production

​Assisting Rural Airstrips Agency (RAA) producing cone markers for Rural Airstrips around the country under the iRAMP Projects.
​​With the increasing demand for our range of appropriate rural toilets the fibreglass section of our production workshop is kept very busy making moulds and waste storage bins. We are very lucky to have two very experienced staff working in this section and it seems that no job is too big for them to handle. ​​


Production of Low cost Medical Incinerator

At the moment we are busy producing our low-cost medical waste incinerator for a number of clients around Papua New Guinea. This low-cost alternative to the very high-cost imported models is in great demand. Our incinerator which does not require electricity to operate is an appropriate option for rural health facilities. 
Staff Development  & Trainning

Staff development is also an important part of any organization. Just because a person is a cleaner or a security working for an organization does not mean him or her do not need any formal education. ATprojects employs people of all walks of life with different education levels from those graduating from universities, and those coming from the village with little or no formal education at all.
