NBTE To Accredit Nimet Diploma Courses

National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) is set to inspect facilities at Regional Training Centre (RTC) of Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NiMet) in Oshodi-Lagos.
This followed application for accreditation of diploma courses at the centre by NiMet.
Director General of NiMet, Prof. Charles Anosike, in a statement yesterday by the agency, said accreditation will expand the centre.
He said: “NiMet not only provides weather information, but also trains manpower in meteorology and climate sciences.

“World Meteorological Organisation Regional Training Centre (WMO RTC), Oshodi, Lagos, established in 1957, is responsible for meteorological manpower training for NiMet.
“Over the years, the centre has been running and issuing only certificates courses because it has no national monitoring and accrediting body.
“To further fortify and expand its training horizon, we approached NBTE, Kaduna, to express interest in running diploma programmes in National Diploma Meteorology and National Diploma Climate Change Science.
“NBTE has approved the advisory/resources inspection visit to the centre as a precursor to running of ND programmes”.
