Mr. Joseph Ruto

Each of these Diploma courses takes three years.

All the three listed diploma courses are offered on full time basis, and are taught by highly qualified staff. This gives consistency in student evaluation and offers equal opportunities in the training process for all students in the branch and the KIHBT fraternity hence ensuring high quality of training.

The programs consist of coursework, workshops, projects, field attachments and industrial visits to initiate research and innovation.

The branch also offers part time Higher Diploma programmes. The trainees are well absorbed in the ministries, parastatals and private organizations. All this is aimed at meeting the institute’s Mission and Vision.

The branch also offers Motor Vehicle Mechanic courses examined by the Ministry Of Labor leading to the issuance of Grades III, II and I certificate.
