The University of Technology, Jamaica (UTech) dates its beginning from 1958, originally as the Jamaica Institute of Technology. In 1959 the name of the institution was changed
to the College of Arts, Science and Technology and it became incorporated in the College of Arts, Science and Technology (CAST) Scheme of 1959. This was validated by an Act of Parliament in 1964. In 1986, the CAST Scheme was revised in order to make the College a degree-granting institution, and the College became legally empowered to conduct its affairs under a governing Council and Academic Board.
The institution was formally accorded University status on September 1, 1995 as the University of Technology, Jamaica. The University of Technology, Jamaica Act 27 - 1999, which makes permanent provisions for the establishment of the University of Technology, Jamaica, was approved by Parliament on June 8, 1999 and signed into law by the Governor General on June 29, 1999.
UTECH has academic offerings, wit h emphasis on flexibility of approach, work-based learning and professional linkages. The Flexibility in UTECH academic offerings is reflected in the various modes of programme delivery, which include full-time and part-time and cooperative work based programmes.
In addition, several programmes are franchised in a number of Community Colleges and most programmes are linked to national and international professional organisations. UTECH has brought hope and a sense of pride to the citizens of Western Jamaica with the advent of the UTECH Western Campus, which has opened its doors at the Trelawny Multipurpose stadium.
On Wednesday, September 7, 2011, UTECH hosted an Opening Ceremony and Information Session at the stadium, which was attended by a large gathering of members of government, civic leaders, educators, students and citizens who came to witness the historic event. Read more......Read less

SINGER Jamaica Limited has had a presence in the world for 160 years and in Jamaica for over 100 years. The company began its operations in Jamaica by selling sewing machines. Salesmen travelled out in the field with pictures of sewing products to potential customers. When the sale was made the item was delivered to the customer using a handcart. The first retail store was opened on Harbour Street with four members of staff selling only one sewing machine each day. The company has experienced significant growth since and today sells a wide range of electronics, appliances, furniture and bedding in addition to its sewing machine line. Singer has 19 branches island-wide and employs over two hundred Jamaicans directly.

Through our sewing programmes many persons have been able to start their own dressmaking business thus providing an income for their families. Singer Jamaica has assisted many Secondary Schools and Skills Development Centres island-wide by donating sewing machines to assist in their sewing programmes and has even provided specialized training in areas such as Garment construction, Machine Embroidery and Drapery Making to teenage children in Kingston and in rural Jamaica.
SINGER is committed to fostering the growth of Jamaican small manufacturers as is seen in our reliance on local furniture suppliers. Presently, 70% of our furniture is bought locally from over 30 suppliers who employ jointly approximately 400 Jamaicans. Our furniture manufacturers are encouraged to create new and appealing designs and work closely with our purchasing team and quality assurance personnel to constantly refine their product quality.

Gomex Technologies Limited, a Jamaican Company duly registered under the Laws of Jamaica under the Companies Act of 2004, was founded in March 2009 to respond to the need for
trained professionals in information security and computer forensics in the Caribbean. To fully realise this objective Gomex signed partnership agreements with top forensics hardware and software companies international. Gomex signed reseller agreements with Guidance Software Inc, AccessData, Logicube, Cellebrite and other top forensics brands. Gomex has since consulted with law enforcement in Jamaica, Curacao, Grenada, Turks and Caicos Islands, and the Cayman Islands. In 2009, Gomex became the first and currently the only Authorised Training Partner (ATP) for Guidance Software makers of the Award Winning EnCase Computer Investigative Software. In 2001, Gomex was presented with a plaque form Guidance Software as the Rising star of 2011 for outstanding performance as a young training entity. In 2011, Gomex trained and certified to international standards 15 officers of the Jamaica Constabulary Force. These officers acquired the skills set necessary to investigate computers and digital devices for evidence, using internationally accepted best practices and to present the evidence in a court of law.
In July 2011, Gomex found it necessary to separate the training business form the consulting business as a way of better organising products and services. Gomex Security Academy (GSA) was established to have a focused objective of provide professional training and certification to Jamaica and the Caribbean. To execute the mandate GSA signed an agreement with CompTIA, the world's most popular and vendor neutral certification and global information technology industry membership organisation. GSA then became a CompTIA Authorised Training partner offering a wide array of training programs for entry level information technology specialists. GSA then signed an agreement with the EC-Council internatio nal to become one of the two EC-Council Authorised Training Partner (ATP) in Jamaica to conduct training programmes in Ethical Hacking and other computer security related programs.
In September 2012, Gomex became a Pearson VUE Authorised Testing Centre to offer proctored exams for international certification bodies such as Cisco, Novell, CompTIA and many others. Within the first year of operation, Gomex proctored more than 120 Certifications exams to Jamaicans. Kryterion then approached Gomex to proctor their High-Stakes Online Secure testing service offering examinations in Communications and other college level proctored exams.
In 2013, with the demand for higher education, Gomex Security Academy (GSA) was renamed as Gomex Institute of Technology (GIT or Gomex Tech). This name change was needed to facilitate the comprehensive training programs and academic training that Gomex is now being positioning to take on. Gomex will continue to establish partnership with internat ional institutions to provide first class training programs to Jamaican and the Caribbean to a wider extent. Read more......Read less
