Programme Information

Electrotechnics for secondary school leavers is a 2-year (28 months) Technical Skills Training Program (TSTP) to develop technical professionals for power and engineering services sector.

Though the course is heavy in Electrical, Electronics and Automation trade components, it also has Mechanical, Engineering Design, Engineering Fundamentals, and Programming components. A core component of this programme is the Work Ethic and Values core. tudents are helped through this core to understand the implication of every decision they make.

Graduates of this course are multi-skilled, flexible service technicians capable of working in several engineering environment. Their services are in high demand.

Enrollment to the program is continuous throughout the year.

Programme Structure

First Phase

Students spend the whole of the first 1 year and 6 months in school (inside IIT). Students come to school Mondays to Fridays (except for public holidays & other school holidays). School resumption time is 9am and closing time is 5.00pm with a short break (30mins) at 11am and a longer break (1 hr) for lunch at 1.30pm. Students attend theory and practical classes following a monthly time-table.

Second Phase

Students spend 10 Months in a selected partner company for the in-plant training phase following the Dual Training System (DTS) of vocational training. Every week, the student works in the company for four days following a preplanned training plan and comes to school for one day. Companies are encouraged to pay the students stipend for transportation and feeding. They work following the company rules and regulations. The students keep a logbook of their activities which is reviewed by delegated staff and forms an essential component of the final assessment of the student.


IIT, a Learning Affiliate of the Energy Institute (Engineering Council of the United Kingdom) awards to succuesful students who have completed the full programme its qualification in the field of Electrotechnics. This is a professional qualification for employment purposes. However, outside Nigeria, it may be used for academic/performance purposes.

Students who opt to participate only in the in-school phase of the programme (first phase) so that they can pursue an academic qualification will be awarded a Testimonial. This will indicate that they have completed the in-school training required for the Electrotechnics Trade.

IIT only aims to address unemployment in Nigeria as a technical skill focused institute. Therefore we aim for proficiency in industrial workplace productivity. We do not intend to be within the pool of academic focused institutions in Nigeria.

Upon completion of this programme, participants can work within high level manufacturing industries or engineering services firms. They can also sit for the level 3 or level 4 examination of the applied Electrical or Mechanical Engineering programmes of the City & Guilds of London. They can also sit for the examinations conducted by the National Business and Technical Examination Board (NABTEB). The examination fee is not covered within the Electromechanics programme fees.

Also, graduates after the Electrotechnics programme can decide to undergo an academic programme while they are working.

IIT is an examination centre for NABTEB.

We prepare our students with the right knowledge, skill and attitude of a competent technician.
