Mining Institute Training Centre in Arandis to accommodate more trainees

The Namibian Institute of Mining and Technology (NIMT) received funding of over N$200,000 from the German Embassy to extend their textile training section in Arandis.

After the extension of the textile training centre, the institute will be able to accommodate more trainees, thus offering young local placements for apprenticeships.

The institute was originally founded as a training centre for mining professions but has expanded to offer 12 different training courses such as mechanics, welding, bricklaying, plastering and professions in the textile industry.

The funding totalling to N$218, 314 will also be used to build a storeroom for the Arandis office of the institute.

Representatives from the German Embassy in Namibia and NIMT signed the contract for financial support of the project in September.
