About Gentiana

Gentiana Technical College was started by Gentiana Development Network (GDN) in the Year 2009 with the motive of imparting skills to the youth from humble background and also encouraging the young people who finished primary school level and did not manage to go to secondary school maybe due to low KCPE grades and even those who have finished secondary school and did not manage to go to university due to lack of funds and maybe low grades. GDN had the aim of imparting technical skills to the youth that can make them acquire an employment and also be able to self employ themselves.

It majorly started with electrical installation being the major course and supplemented by computer software and hardware basics. Since then till now, the college has improved it’s course and introduced even new ones; like AutoCAD and PLC. Being a technical college, we move with the trends in technology and energy sector.

The college has well equipped itself with solar learning and training materials in order to promote and boost solar learning in order to meet the demand of technicians required even as the whole world is trying to go for green energy.

The college does national exams and certification; that is NITA (National Industrial Training Authority) exams for electrical and CSK(Computer Society of Kenya). With the many improvement, the college has earned its name to be an examination test centre for the NITA exams unlike when it started when students had to exams in other centers.
