PARTICIPANTS' WELFARE

In ARMTI, the participant is king. ARMTI facilities, organisation and culture are built around the provision of optimum service to our participants (in all facets).
To facilitate this a participant's welfare officer is assigned. Apart from this every ARMTI Staff is a potential 'waiter ' on participants.
In ARMTI we recognize two major categories of participants' needs :-

Training needs:
  • These are satisfied by our courses which are based on needs study, and are therefore, practical and problem-solving.
Social needs:
  • These are satisfied by our facilities which include health care and catering services, as well as ,a wide range of in-door and out-door recreational and sporting activities. Apart from this ARMTI participants are also taken on educational visits and tours to historical places and tourist attractions within and outside Kwara State.
