Looking for industry training? Koppert Kenya receives NITA certification

One of the first steps any client in need of professional training should take before enrolling for any training sessions is to verify whether or not the training company is accredited with a recognized accrediting agency. Accreditation serves as an assurance mechanism for the delivery of quality service. The National Industrial Training Authority (NITA) is a semi-autonomous government agency which perpetuates industrial training in Kenya. NITA was established under the Industrial Training (Amendment) Act of 2011. It’s mandate is to promote the highest standards in the quality and efficiency of industrial training in Kenya and ensure adequate supply of properly trained manpower at all levels in industries.

Why NITA Accreditation is Important

Studies have shown that accreditation programs significantly improve capacity building and the delivery of quality services. On June 9th 2015, Kenya celebrated the 8th anniversary of World Accreditation Day, a global initiative jointly established by the International Accreditation Forum (IAF). The general consensus was that “Accreditation provides regulators with a reliable monitoring tool to support continuous improvement and that it provides objective proof that the service operates competently and safely and that outcomes can be relied upon.’’ By joining the ranks of NITA certified trainers, Koppert Kenya is well equipped to offer growers interested in boosting their skills and capacity in Integrated Pest Management and Crop Protection.
