Kenya Technical Trainers' College is a Government Institution under TVET (Technical and Vocational Education and Training).


The College is currently located in the Gigiri area of Nairobi along Limuru Road, next to the United Nations Office at Nairobi. There is a controversial proposal by the Government of Kenya to relocate the college to the Kenya Science Campus of University of Nairobi along Ngong road.[2] The reasons advanced for the relocation have varied from offering the 62 acres of land the college sits on to United Nations Office at Nairobi for expansion, to security concerns due to close proximity to the Embassy of the United States, Nairobi.[3]
