Dangote Industries Limited (DIL) and German Equipment Manufacturers Association (VDMA) have formally opened the Train-the-Trainer (Didactic & Rhetoric) Course (ToT) under the Dangote VDMA Initiative on Technical Education & Vocational Training (TVET).
The programme which took place in Dangote Academy Complex, Obajana, Kogi State recently, is a culmination of a project, which started on February 10, 2016, with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between DIL and VDMA.

Accordingly, the TVET agreement was later signed in November, 2016, for the training of 200 Nigerian youths as technicians while the approval for the registration and implementation of the agreement was granted by the National Office for Technology Acquisition and Promotion (NOTAP) on 11, October, 2017.
The two firms described the commencement of the ToT a major milestone in the effort to fully implement the Dangote -VDMA initiative.
