Ten students from the University of Papua New Guinea and Technology will undergo eight to ten weeks of training as part of NARI’s support towards capacity building at the Kilakila Chemistry Laboratory in Port Moresby.
Most of the students are taking up year three chemistry and applied chemistry except one final year student from UPNG. Out of the ten students, eight are from UPNG and two from UNITECH.
Two students taking up year three in sustainable tropical agriculture-rural technology from UNRE’s Oro Campus are also undergoing training at the Momase Regional Centre in Lae.
Silister Kuniata and Kurttey Niali started their training in mid December with the crops and livestock program.
Ms Kuniata and Mr Niali expressed that being involved in the practical activities is an eye-opener with so much learning apart from theory. They will spend three months of training with the aid of the technical staff of MRC before they return to complete their final year of study.
