Currently, automotive mechanics, electricians, and hotel/tourism specialists are being trained. In 2019, the profession of agricultural machinery mechanic (Agro Mechanics) was added, in partnership with the West German Chamber of Crafts. On the VETA campuses, dedicated workshops have been equipped for this purpose. These are located in Dar es Salaam, Moshi, and Babati.
VETA is striving to introduce dual training throughout the country, and the Chamber of Crafts is on hand to provide advice and support. Partners in this are the Association of Tanzanian Employers (ATE) and the Ministry of Education (MoEST).
A weak education infrastructure, bottlenecks in the training of technical teaching staff, and curricula that do not meet the needs of companies are problems that accompany the Tanzanian economy.
- The training is 3.0 years
- In January 2020, the 6th round since the beginning of the project has started
- Participating companies nationwide approx. 120
- Current trainees in the system approx. 250
- Apprentices who completed their dual training: 201
- Apprentices with a permanent job after completing their training: 95%.

In the new phase of the project, the following new professions will be established and workshops equipped: Carpenter, Plumber, Painter, Bricklayer, and Tourist Guides.
Corresponding guidelines have been developed and made binding for the orientation of the companies. This project is primarily about know-how transfer. The project is funded by the BMZ through Sequa.
