Welding has contributed a lot to the Ugandan community. The trainees and the staff have found friends and a sense of purpose. We’ve established connections, advanced our careers and incredible experience.
Major projects are being handled by these committed, capable, self-motivated and hardworking trainees. I believe the courses offered at the institute is a better career and path to meaningful life today because of the insignificant records as regards “street life”.
The increases in market competition, unemployment and technology advancement have posed a big economic challenge to both the citizens and non-citizens in that, without hand on skills, one would survive on gambling. But, through vocational education, Ntinda VTI is producing competent craftsmen to alleviate the unemployment rate and also avail appropriate skills to all interested persons.
Parents, guardians and students, are encouraged to choose vocational education, leading to job creators and avoid “journey of prolonged job seeking”.
Finally, the courses offered in the department are among the best career options.
