  ARMTI's training programmes cover the following major areas:  
  • planning and management of agricultural and rural development;
  • human resources development and general management;
  • agricultural finance and micro-credit management;
  • entrepreneurship and small/medium enterprise development and management;
  • ICT and management information system/data processing;
  • gender issues and youth development;
  • agricultural research management;
  • rural infrastructure and institutions development management; and
  • extension management.
Besides regular training courses, ARMTI also organises workshops, seminars and conferences on topical issues relating to agricultural and rural development policy and management. For many years, ARMTI has been organising international courses and has been reputed as a centre of excellence in management training in Africa.


  ARMTI courses are designed to provide practical assistance to all grade of managers serving in the agricultural and rural sector in the three tiers of government viz local, state and federal.

Participatory: The training methods emphasise shared learning experiences, case studies, role plays and syndicate discussions to ensure that course subject matter is applied to real life situations. ARMTI also runs special management clinics, and laboratories for improving human interaction. Our training approach is enriched by modern training technology such as multi-media equipment and resourceful study tours.

Responsive: ARMTI courses have been developed to meet the training needs identified in a systematic survey of client organisations, and are regularly revised in the light of changing demands.

Follow-up: A fellow-up system has been adopted to help participants apply what they have learnt in the classroom to their job situations. For instance, participants may be asked to carry out practical projects or assignments which will then be reviewed by ARMTI faculty. In other cases, client organisations may be visited after training, to give further coaching and assistance to participants, and to up-date information already provided.


  These are job-specific and performance-based, special training packages designed to respond to the unique requirements of individual organisations. These specialized packages have been found to be more economical and rewarding because they enable organisations to train more people on their sides at minimum cost.
