ZESA National Training Centre was established under the then Electricity Supply Commission to serve the SADC region as a centre for Thermal Power Station training. It welcomed its first group of Apprentices in 1988. The centre was officially opened by His Excellency the President of the Republic of Zimbabwe, Comrade Robert Gabriel Mugabe on the 25th of July 1990.

In the formative years the centre focused mainly on the then Generation Department and the Laboratories and Workshop were equipped mainly for that objective. Presently the National Training Centre has diversified its core business to include technical and non-technical training, conferencing, accommodation, food and beverages.
