The Zambezi Vocational Training Center is based in the town of Katima Mulilo in the Zambezi Region in the far-north-eastern Namibia, on the shores of the Zambezi River. Zambia is on the other side of the Zambezi River and Zimbabwe and Botswana are the adjacent countries. The center first opened its doors in 1993 with an initial enrollment of 36 trainees training in 3 vocational trades and these were Clothing Technology, Joinery & Cabinet Making and Secretarial & Office Administration. Over the years, the center expanded from 3 to 7 occupations/trades and these are: Bricklaying & Plastering, Clothing Production, Hospitality & Tourism, Joinery & Cabinet Making, Plumbing & Pipe fitting, Office Administration and Welding & Metal Fabrication. As a result of training program expansion, the enrollment also grew to well over 500 trainees. Over 50% the trainee population is females. The staff compliment also grew from 15 to over 50 staff members (this includes 25 full and part-time instructors/trainers).

Zambezi Vocational Training Center operated under the National Vocational Training Act, No. 18 of 1994 under the Ministry of Education until June 2008 when the Vocational Education and Training Act, No. 1 of 2008 was promulgated. This Act made provision for the management and control of the state-owned vocational training Center's to be devolved upon the Namibia Training Authority until date that Centers are, in the opinion of the Board, able to be transformed into self-reliant vocational education and training provider. By way of giving Vocational Training Center's self-governance, NTA has appointed an Interim Advisory Committee to promote efficiency and service oriented approach to the management of the VTCs. The Zambezi VTC Interim Advisory Committee is therefore serving as an advisory body of the center.
