Last month, we hosted a roundtable discussion with Technical Facility Operation and Maintenance stakeholders alongside our partner The Abuja chamber of commerce and Industry (ACCI) to review and discuss the technical facility operation and maintenance of the dual vocational training program which started in October 2021.

Our DG Marilyn Rapu and DVT Coordinator Emmanuel Chukweurah were joined by experts from Germany Mr. Karl-Heinz Ketteler and Peter Porten, trainers from ITF and trainee representative Mayowa Adeola.

It was a very insightful discussion, we were able to identify issues and difficulties experienced during the training delivery and get first-hand feedback from the companies on how the trainees performed and the benefits of the program on their business.

Trainee representative Mayowa Adeola said “The training was very beneficial to me, it developed my mind, helped me develop my confidence and challenged me. I learned valuable technical skills, I have successfully been able to transfer in my work placement role with Chi Farms.” He also recommends more companies participate in the Technical Vocational Education Training (TVET) for TFOM.

The team then visited TFOM trainees on one of Megawatts Nigeria Limited construction sites to see progress on their ongoing project. TVET will continue to play an important role in the shift towards more knowledge-intensive societies. Many countries have identified TVET programs as core components in their long-term development strategies.

Trainees on the current Technical Facility Operation and Maintenance Training are currently undergoing the last theory component of the program, which comes to an end in October 2022. NGCC will be recruiting new trainees for the next cohort, from January 2023. Watch this space if you will like to upskill employees in facility management.
