Kenya Forestry College (KFC) is a public TVET registered training institution administered by the Kenya Forest Service (KFS) that is located in Londiani. It is also registered with the Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS).
KFC trains technical foresters at diploma and certificate levels, and also trains forest Rangers and law enforcement officers from the Kenya Forest Service and other forest protection agencies such as county governments, and Nature Conservancies. It also offers short term training to communities and civic organizations involved in natural resource and environmental conservation on various aspects of forestry practice and natural resource management. Many of these courses are organized in Collaboration with other institutions such as Universities, and the Kenya Forestry Research Institute.
KFC also offers training for community forest scouts to enable them play an effective role in forest protection through participatory forest management as envisaged under the Forest Conservation and Management Act of 2016.
The College has a modern saw mill and has developed a programme on industrial training in saw doctoring, sawing machine operation, timber seasoning and grading, basic logging, and carpentry and joinery. This is with the aim of preparing human resource capital for revitalization of the wood industry sector.
An ultra modern convention centre, to enhance the effectiveness of the continuing education programmes, and to support workshop, seminars and training activities of public and civic agencies has also been developed.
KFC runs her training on a competency based curriculum which is responsive to market needs and promotes high standards of forestry practice. It has been very instrumental in producing innovative graduates who meet emerging forestry and environment related challenges.
Graduates of the College have found job opportunities in the private and civic society sectors, and the public service. Our Diploma programme is tailored to facilitate further training at the degree level. There is also a strong interest in College programmes in the region.
As Principal I would wish to invite you to train with us and also urge you to visit the KFC campus to view our facilities and learn more about our programmes. Londiani is serene and very conducive for training and also for having workshops, meetings and conferences. We remain committed to giving the best service.
