The official information from the Management concerning that the Petroleum Training Institute Effurun (Pti Effurun) are to write Jamb can be found below:
The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has listed the institute in its brochure in line with the Federal Government’s directive to ensure uniformity in admission processes into all tertiary institutions.
The institute’s Deputy Director of Public Relations, Mr Brown Ukanefimoni, said PTI 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.
Applicants hitherto sat for entrance examinations conducted internally by the institute.
They were were conducted in Delta, Lagos, Rivers, Enugu, Sokoto, Kaduna, Jigawa and Abuja, the Federall Capital Territory.
The HND applicants only went for interviews conducted by the institute’s management.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 retain one-on-one interview as part of the criteria for HND programme.
Students’ Affair Officer, Mr Ajima Jackson, welcomed the decision, but said it would affect the institute’s Internally-Generated Revenue (IGR).
He however, added: “This will definitely improve the exposure of PTI more and also make mobilisation for National Youth Service easier.”
