The Kenya Medical Training College (KMTC) is now offering a Diploma course to Kenyans looking to pursue careers as mortuary attendants.
The course is known as Diploma in Mortuary Science and is the only Diploma course in Kenya for this line of work.
The course runs for a period of three years. However, students who already hold a certificate in this course from a reputable institution will undergo training for just two years to attain a Diploma.
“The College will now be offering a Diploma in Mortuary Science beginning March 2023. It’s the first-ever course in East and Central Africa,” said KMTC.
“The training takes 3 years, while those already with a certificate in the same course from other reputable institutions will join in year two.”
Intake for the new course started in March 2023. The minimum grade requirement will be a KCSE mean grade of C-.
According to KMTC, students willing to apply for the course will be required to apply through the college’s official student applications portal.
KMTC announced that the curriculum for the Diploma in Mortuary Science course was developed in conjunction with stakeholders from the Ministry of Health, the University of Nairobi, Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology, and the Masinde Muliro University.
