When it comes to medical education, the Kenya Medical Training College, or KMTC, is undoubtedly the most favored organization.
The institution offers a wide variety of courses, including short courses, higher diploma or certificate degrees, and diplomas and certificates.
The majority of certificate programs demand a KCSE Mean grade of C- (Minus). However, some certificate programs call for a D+ on the KCSE Mean (plus).
In this article, we’ll discuss in-depth on the KMTC certificate programs that a student with a D+ (plus) can enroll in.
It’s crucial to remember that certificate programs last two years, with the exception of Community Health Nursing, which takes two and a half years. Courses for a diploma last three years.
