Overseas Vocational Training Association

OVTA - Helping Businesses Develop Human Resources for Globalization

From the Chairman


Established in November 1982 with the cooperation of both the public and private sectors, the Overseas Vocational Training Association-popularly known as OVTA-aims to aid businesses in providing the human resources they need to respond to globalization. In working towards this goal ,it has developed a wide variety of programs in response to social needs through its Makuhari training complex in Chiba City. It is my wish that OVTA continues to provide strong support to businesses while contributing to international society through its efforts in human resources development (HRD).
