Railway training Institute

Society prominently assigns a value on education, a constituent that has caused many education institutions to be established in Kenya. However, we have seen cases of school dropouts becoming millionaires if not billionaires. Such rare cases have kindled the debate on whether or not one needs education to be successful. If you are a stronger believer in getting quality education to advance your career, then it is best you go to an accredited institution. One of those schools in Nairobi, Kenya where you can gain knowledge and employment-ready skills is Rift Valley Training Institute (RTI).

The institute was established in the colonial era with the aim of meeting the demand for a skilled workforce which was urgently required during the construction of the East African railways and harbours. At that time the institution was focusing exclusively on railways courses that gave students the technical skills needed at that time. Still, in 1988 the institute began offering commercial courses — a move that earned them recognition from the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology. Here is everything you need to understand about Railway Training Institute courses, fees structure, how to apply for the program you want and contact details.
