THE leading pan-African technology service provider, PNN, and National Power Training Institute of Nigeria (NAPTIN) have entered into a four-year partnership  to provide renewable energy capacity building within Nigeria, and to work with the institute to standardise training quality in Nigeria as part of the Federal Government’s power reform programme.

According to the Director General/ Chief Executive Officer, Reuben Okeke, an engineer, (NAPTIN), said at a press briefing held in Abuja recently, the plan is  to deliver under this collaboration, PNN will work with the Renewable Energy Technology Institute (RETI) to develop and deliver programmes that meet international standards. RETI is expected to work with NAPTIN to consolidate and standardize training across Nigeria for all persons, establishments and institutions that will participate in the country’s growing renewable energy sector; and will award three levels of national certification, which will qualify participants to work anywhere in the power industry, globally.

Okeke, expressed that its firm certification will qualify its recipients to work anywhere in the renewable energy sector, in Nigeria and all over the world. RETI will conduct the training programme in conjunction with NAPTIN staff as well as international partners, who will also deliver training under the institute’s train-the-trainer curriculum. He added that, “NAPTIN’s choice of PNN was mainly based on PNN’s clear understanding of the requirements for improving standards of training for all personnel in the renewable energy sector, as well as standardising knowledge across the board, at all levels of participation.
