Ardhi Institute-Tabora

Add Favorites

Ardhi Institute Tabora (ARITA) originated from an in-house training of map draughtsmanship which was conducted by the Ministry of Lands since 1955. From July 1964, the course was formalized and was conducted on six months duration. Lack of sufficient room to conduct the course and the growing need for more technicians in the Lands sector as a result of more land offices being opened at District level compelled the Ministry to expand the training. This resulted in the transfer of the training to Tabora in 1979.
