ADJUSTMENT IN THE IFC SCHOLARSHIP OFFER AND TRAINING DATE

Following the popular demand from majority of interested trainees who seek to participate and be beneficiaries of the IFC partial scholarship support for the Solar PV Training, we wish to inform all trainees and the general public of changes being made with respect to the partial scholarship offer. The IFC partial scholarship offer has been increased to 75% but will now cover ONLY TUITION FEE and the training duration of 4 weeks for SPVI & SPVIS have been adjusted to 3 weeks, while Mini-Grid Design will be for 5 weeks, with training days spanning now from Mon. - Sat. of every week. 

These changes were informed by many trainees who could afford to get alternative accommodation arrangement in Lagos but having challenges to raise their part payment of N125,000. In order to make it easier for each trainee to afford the training and be a beneficiary, Trainees are now to pay only 25% of the new tuition fee of N150,000, which is  N37,500, for the 3 weeks training, while the balance of 75% of the tuition, which is N112,500, will be paid by IFC. Trainees are now expected to make arrangement for their own accommodation.

TRAINING OF ARTISANS, CRAFTSMEN & TECHNICIANS ON POWER RELATED CAPACITY BUILDING PROGRAMMES

 

National Power Training Institute of Nigeria

Federal Ministry of Power Works & Housing

NAPTIN Technical Skills Acquisition Programme (NTSAP)

2017/2018 Scholarship Session

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY ON JOB CREATION FOR 1,000 YOUTHS THROUGH TRAINING OF ARTISANS, CRAFTSMEN & TECHNICIANS

ON POWER RELATED CAPACITY BUILDING PROGRAMMES

The National Power Training Institute of Nigeria (NAPTIN) is an agency of the Federal Government, under the aegis of the Federal Ministry of Power, Works and Housing, with the mandate of building human capacity and coordinating training activities in the power sector.

NAPTIN in its bid to strategically align with the Federal Government job creation Programmes, intends to train and provide job opportunities for 1000 young Nigerians in skill trades that are required by the privatized Power utilities. This drive is as a result of the feedback from stakeholders engagement with the Distribution Companies of Nigeria in their areas of needs.

In order to ameliorate the dearth of skilled technical manpower in the sector and give a minimum comfort level to the new operators, a structured and fast track capacity building and skills acquisition programme referred to as NAPTIN Technical Skills Acquisition Programme (NTSAP) has been put together by NAPTIN.

The scheme (NTSAP) will provide adequate skills training and requisite capacity building for five core technical trade categories. These are:

  1. Distribution Substation Operators (DSO),
  2. Cable Jointers,
  3. Linesmen/Pole Climbers
  4. Electrical Fitters
  5. Solar PV Installers

NAPTIN intends to provide scholarship on behalf of the Federal Government to train 1,000 youths in these five categories of technical skills based on budget appropriation for 2017 and 2018.

Based on the 2017 budget release, 200 candidates will be trained in this first batch and will be spread across the six geopolitical zones. The remaining 800 candidates will be trained under the 2018 budget appropriation.

Training delivery approach & methodology

  • The modalities for the training of these Artisans and Craftsmen are hinged on classroom and field practical learning approaches. The training will be conducted in 5 batches within 1 year across the six geo-political zones.
  • 1,000 trainees will be batched into four (4) groups within 1 year based on budget release across the six geo-political zones in order to fit into available classrooms and number of trainees that can be deployed to the utility companies for effective practical learning and knowledge transfer, in line with our MoU with the Utilities.
  • The first 200 trainees will be trained within the next 3 months. Then the remaining 800 will be trained in 4 batches within the year after the release of the 2018 appropriation.
  • The sector will have additional 1,000 skilled and competent workforce to draw from by the end of 2018.
  • The training Programme which will be the classroom and fieldwork on the job training will be conducted according to outlined modules for each trade.
  • Application forms are to be completed by potential candidates. Also, they can visit our portal @ naptinportal.com or contact 08172780301;08118979141 for more enquiries from Monday – Friday ; 8am -4pm.
