NIMT agrees strongly with the government's goals that Namibians should educate and enable themselves to take up skilled and managerial positions within the mining and other industries.

NIMT came into being nearly ten years ago is an independence gift to Namibia from Rossing Uranium Limited.
With this philosophy in mind, NIMT established a training facility which combines theoretical training and practical experience.
Although the names of those that are admitted to different NIMT
campuses are published in newspapers well beforehand, some others still turn up hoping to get a chance to study, adding that many come from as far as Oshakati, and it was revealed that nearly 75 young people who were not on the shortlist and mostly from the north were sent away at Keetmanshoop, stressed by Bingham.
The conference, which will be hosted by NIMT
is enriched by a Mineral, Mining and Energy Expo, where exhibitors will showcase the latest products and services in the field.
Although most of our graduates are absorbed by industry, a lot have opted to be their own bosses and about 40% actually come back to NIMT and work for the Institution because of the dynamic impact of investing in vocational training.
Saying that with the good relationship that NIMT has built with industry, job attachments and placements are not difficult for students as companies are willing to do their part in fostering skill development.
Hence OPM would like to use this opportunity to encourage other training institutions to follow the good example laid by NIMT
to expand their services to needy communities in our society," the Prime Minister's office said in a statement.
President Hifikepunye Pohamba inaugurated the campus in the presence of new NIMT trainees, Cabinet members and other senior government officials.
Skills development plays a vital role in our business, which is why we feel so strongly about investing in and nurturing what NIMT is doing.
