Technical and vocational training in Nakuru County got a boost after the county government procured training tools and equipment worth Ksh 10 million.
The items will be distributed to all technical and vocational training centres across the county.
Among the procured equipment are metal processing machines, welding machines as well as fashion and design machines.
According to the county government, the machines will be of great value to learners as they will enable them to translate the theoretical knowledge learned in class into practical.
The welding machines will be distributed to Subukia, Njoro and Wamaitha training centers.
According to Mr Francis Mwangi, Director Vocational Training, the equipment for the fashion and design courses will be given to newly constructed vocational training centres.
Mr Mwangi reiterated the county government’s commitment towards the equipping and construction of new vocational centers across Nakuru.
