About Don Bosco Boys Technical Training Centre

Don Bosco Boys Town Technical Training Center provides technical, moral and total human value formation education to young men and girls to enable them to become contributive honourable citizens of the country.

Don Bosco students usually are of the age bracket of 18-22 and they come from the very poor and desperate segment of the Kenyan society. The above is achieved through a technical programme of two years. Because of the desperate and helpless background of the students, the Institution follows a different, patient and flexible approach to suit their learning In spite of the very limited funds, the Institution does everything to make this learning more or less perfect. The Institution takes pride in doing this because it is in the interest of the poor and the deprived.

Our training consists of a two-year technical programme backed by relevant workshop practice sessions.

The following are the trades taught at the Institution:

  • Electricals,
  • Mechanical Engineering (Machinists, Fitters/Turners),
  • Welders,
  • Motor Vehicle Mechanic,
  • Masonry,
  • Carpentry/Joinery,
  • Plumbing and Tailoring.

The students participate in closely supervised apprenticeship while preparing for the Grade III Government Trade Test which is held every year. During the first year, students choose a course of their liking. During the second year, they are allowed to do a different course that supplements the previous one.

After the successful training, the trainees are awarded Don Bosco Merit Certificate and the Government Trade Test Certificate either in one trade or in supplementary trades which the candidates could have taken as optional.
