The Montfort Training Institute (MTI) in Savusavu officially received its provisional Registration Certificate from Fiji Higher Education Commission (FHEC). The certificate was received by the Vice Principal of the institution, Bro Francis Abraham from a visiting FHEC consultancy team.
The MTI in Savusavu and Montfort Boys Town in Veisari were operating previously under one registration certificate.
“We are grateful, that we can be independent in this sense, and to get registered under the Fiji Higher Education Commission means a lot in terms of the integrity of our institution and the programme it offers,” said Bro Francis.
Admissions into MTI are mainly given to students in the Northern division, irrespective of race and religion, and many students are attracted to the institution from the success stories of its graduates.
The institution currently offers Trade Certificate programmes in cabinet making carpentry and joinery and automotive mechanic. Towards the end of the training at Montfort, the students are conducted trade test by Training Productivity Authority of Fiji, and certificates are given to the successful candidates with class 111 trade certificate.
The Director of the FHEC, Dr Rohit Kishore commended the MTI for working closely with the FHEC to reach this stage of registration and for serving the Northern division by providing vocational training opportunities.
