    Kenya Industrial Training Institute - Historical journey


    Kenya Industrial Training Institute was established in 1965 with the support of the Japanese Government. Initially, the institute was located in a 3-acre piece of land in Nakuru’s Industrial Area.

    However, due to the need for expansion, it was re-located to a 40-acre piece of land along Nakuru – Solai road, 3kms from Nakuru town.

    KITI was mandated to give trainees hands-on training in technical skills with a strong component of entrepreneurship skills for self-employment.

    The objectives are to train artisans, craftsmen, technicians, engineering graduates, engineers and entrepreneurs to work in the existing industries and for self-employment; train middle level managers for the industrial sector and to carry out research in projects and products that would accelerate rural industrialization.

    Over the years, the institute has kept to her mandate of training even though there have been adjustments in the training programs in order to respond to the changing needs of the customers. One such need was driven by the demand for nationally recognised certification for purposes of employment. This led to mounting training programs examined by bodies such as Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) and Directorate of Industrial Training (DIT) in addition to giving the desired hands-on training.

    The training programs vary between three months and three years. However, the institute also offers shorter courses for specific groups or clients (tailor-made courses to meet client’s training requirements).
