Training is completed by a course in Small Scale Enterprise Development (SED) and a curriculum in Life Skills offered to all classes. The curriculum is planned for twelve months of in-center training that will provide the trainees with real-life work situations and challenges where they will put the knowledge and skills acquired into practice. It is followed by on-the-job training (OJT) and job placement.

General objectives of the program are that all LOIC graduates can produce standard marketable products and services to sustain themselves, assist in the communities, and fit for gainful employment or establish own entrepreneurship.



Admission fees are different among the LOIC programs and for some courses.  Updated fees for the next cycle and each program you can find here.

The fee for the entrance exam is non-refundable if you do not register with LOIC.

All applicants will take an entrance exam. The exam must be passed with at least 70 in both Math and English. Applicants with difficulties in reading or writing will do an oral test. Further updated requirements for the next cycle you will find here.

There is a dress code for all male and female trainees. You ought to wear long blue jeans trousers with T-Shirts issued by LOIC and black socks. Foot wears are black sneakers or shoes or white sneakers. Overalls and security clothing (warning vests, helmets, shoes) for those departments required will be provided by the school and to be used only during practical.

Counseling and OJT Placement

- Counseling:

Career counseling as well as psycho-social and trauma healing counseling are part of the unique features of LOIC. Like vocational training, counseling is regarded as an integral part of the program. Well trained counselors (male and female) will guide our trainees in all phases of the LOIC journey at all locations. This may include motivational training, drama, plays, singing and cultural dances. Also, trainees were educated on the importance and definition of leadership, human rights, self-esteem, and tolerance. Trainees are organized to elect monitors who assist in providing guidance for their classmates and their interaction with the training staff.

Anything to discuss personally? Please get in contact with our counseling coordinator Rebekah Bertsche to be referred to the counselors best suited for your needs.

- OJT Placement:

On-the-Job-Training (OJT) is a crucial part of the LOIC training cycle. LOIC seeks to fulfill the training requirements through practical experience. It enables the trainees to acquire hand-on skills and techniques for job readiness. OJT can either come as an internship or a full placement with an employer. It is during these three to six months period that LOIC staff keeps contact with the individual trainee and his or her supervisor on the job. LOIC has a variety of partners for OJT. If you can offer opportunities to any LOIC graduates for on-the-job training and even employment after graduation, please contact us.
