On November 25-29, 2012 SAI convened a Basic SA8000 Auditor Training course in Chittagong, Bangladesh hosted by the German Technical Cooperation (GIZ). The course was led by SAI Lead Trainer, Sanjiv Singh, with opening remarks from GIZ's Magnus Smith. The course was attended by 16 individuals, including representatives from local factories, buyers, certification bodies, industry associations, government, and GIZ. Following this course, Mr. Singh led another course in Dhaka, Bangladesh, hosted by GIZ. Special thanks to GIZ for hosting both courses in Bangladesh as part of its Promotion of Social and Environmental Standards in the Industry (PSES) project. This event was written up in the Bangladesh paper, the Daily Sun.

SAI training courses are designed to encourage proficiency in social compliance and emphasize the implementation of management systems in combination with performance elements. These courses are required for all SA8000 and BSCI auditors, and are just as valuable to internal auditors, buyers, managers and workers for auditing to any labor code or standard. The courses are open to all. Complimentary places are available for NGO and trade union participants.
