As we have said above, this is a public technical training institution meaning it receives full support from the Government through grants, training equipment, and personnel.

That being so, the fee structure for all the courses offered in the institution is the same regardless of the course.

To be precise the total fee per academic year is Kshs. 56420.

However, because Nairobi technical training institute is a government institution, when you apply through KUCCPS you benefit from a government subsidy of Kshs. 30,000 per year.

Therefore, instead of paying a total of Kshs. 56420, you will only pay Kshs.26,420.

But please note that if you are a self-sponsored student, you pay the fee in full (Kshs. 56420)
