National: GNPC funds NVTI certification exams for 505 artisans in Ashanti Region

Five hundred and five (505) trainee artisans enrolled in the 2021/2022 edition of the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation’s (GNPC) Skilled Artisans Project (SAP) in the Ashanti Region have concluded their National Vocational Training Institute’s (NVTI) skill proficiency exams.

The project is organised and funded by GNPC through the GNPC Foundation.

Beneficiary artisans had their competencies tested in various vocational skills categorised under ‘Domestic module’ – cookery, bakery, dressmaking, tailoring, hairdressing, make-up artistry, and interior designing and decoration.

Taking questions from the media on his visit to the centre at the Kumasi Vocational Training Institute (KVTI) on the final day of examination, the Executive Director of the GNPC Foundation, Dr. Dominic Eduah, said the NVTI certification phase of the project is necessitated by the need to boost their employability and credibility as trained artisans.
