The seminary that began in 1994 is a vibrant centre for leadership training to equip men and women for leadership roles in their communities – be it the corporate sector, the church or the world at large – that they are geared to add value to society in their everyday living.
Speaking at the press briefing, Principal of CTS, Ivor Poobalan acknowledges, "Our alumni have gone on to make significant contributions in their respective spheres." Courses at the institutions are offered in English, Sinhala and Tamil at certificate, diploma and bachelor's levels on a full or part time basis.
Beginning April, the Centre that is credited with various publications in national languages would commence their Masters programme.
