This is to inform candidates who wants to study at the Petroleum Training Institute (PTI), Effurun, that they are now to sit for the JAMB Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
Following the Federal Government’s directive to ensure uniformity in admission processes into all tertiary institutions in Nigeria, the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has listed the institute in its brochure.
According to the PTI Deputy Director of Public Relations, Mr Brown Ukanefimoni, the institution was established to train skilled technologists and technicians required for oil production.
The institute awards National Diploma (ND) and Higher National Diploma (HND) in diverse fields related to oil exploration and processing. Ukanefimoni said the government’s planned to ensure sanity in the admission process.
With the development, Ukanefimoni said applicants who pick PTI as their first choice would be admitted through UTME, adding that the institution would conduct entrance examination to make the admission competitive.
He said the institution would however retain one-on-one interview as part of the criteria for HND programme.
