It is not often that anyone gets to impact the next generation through the creation of structures that will guide the development of great minds into the future. I am privileged to write about this high point in my career as the Professional Trainers Association of Kenya (PTAK) sign an agreement with the Institute of Human Resource Management (IHRM) that will simultaneously raise and regulate the standards of training delivered in workplaces all over Kenya - thus energizing the regional workforce for new and greater levels of productivity and prosperity.
It has been a personal journey since 2007 to have the Association registered (2009). And now, in 2017, I am privileged see the day when we open up the Training Profession, as a career that has served me so well for more than two decades, to thousands of talented young individuals, entrepreneurs, employees and employers across Kenya and the region through the Certified Professional Trainer (CPT) qualification.
I want to personally thank my colleagues at PTAK who have worked tirelessly behind the scenes to make this new future a reality. And, express my deep gratitude to my far sighted professional colleagues at IHRM (Executive Director, Dorcas Wainaina- pictured) who have shown selfless and visionary leadership to ensure that the legacy of an empowered national human resource lives on and grows stronger beyond this generation. This is one of my proudest moments.
Chairman, Professional Trainers Association of Kenya.
