Initially, the Institute provided a two year vocational skills training leading to NVTI Grade 2 in addition to Proficiency Certificates.
However, with the implementation of the Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Programme, trainees who passed out of the Institutes sit for Proficiency 1 & 2 Certificate Examination, Foundational Certificate and Certificate One and Two conducted by the National Vocational Training Institute (NVTI) examination body.
Appropriate Certificate is then awarded to deserving students. The Foundational Certificate and Certificate One and Two can be used to apply for further education at the Polytechnic level, after undertaking a one year Pre-HND Programme.
Students who sit and pass the NVTI examinations can apply directly to the Polytechnic without a Pre- HND programme.
