Earlier this month, we had the graduation ceremony of the Technical Facility Operation and Maintenance Trainees who started their journey in the Technical Vocational Education Training last year in November 2021. This training was a development initiative of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH.

The ceremony took place at the Industrial Skills Training Centre, Ojota Lagos. We had a total number of 11 Trainees, from member companies , graduate.
