Camosun is working with Arusha Technical College, the premier technical school in Tanzania, Africa to develop a gas transmission technician diploma program to meet the pipefitting needs of industry.
The final result will be a program adapted from British Columbia’s trades foundation and apprenticeship system, aligned with the local technical education system in Tanzania. The three-year Diploma will eventually be delivered by Arusha Technical College, with first enrollment expected in the fall of 2017.
Camosun is currently training trainers from Arusha Technical College and supporting the design of their new curriculum.
The program is part of Improving Skills Training for Employment Program (ISTEP), a three-year partnership funded by Global Affairs Canada through Colleges and Institutes Canada (CICan).
