COUNTY PARTNERS WITH MORENDAT INSTITUTE FOR TECHNICAL TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES FOR THE YOUTH.
County government of Nandi is partnering with Morendat Institute of Oil and Gas (MIOG) to offer technical training opportunities for the youth and staff in the county.
Morendat Institute is an academic centre owned by Kenya Pipeline Company Ltd and offers technical and corporate courses. It is registered by both the Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVETA) and National Industrial and Training Authority (NITA).
This partnership offers subsidized training that will be available for the youth and county staff especially those on fire and disaster management unit. These courses include health and environmental safety, quality control, fire fighting, welding, ICT security, corporate courses, electrical and mechanical maintenance among other courses that could be requested from time to time.
Speaking during an MOU signing between MIOG and Nandi County, the deputy governor, Dr. Yulita Cheruiyot highlighted the need for the youth to grab such training opportunities presented to them so as to acquire skills that would increase employability, enable them start their businesses and eventually develop economically.
She further added that the trainees will also offer extremely valuable services to the county in their areas of specialization.
Having signed the MOU, this program will soon be rolled out through the relevant departments of Administration, Public Service & e-Government, Sports & Youth Affairs and that of Education, Research and Vocational training.
