TE Connectivity (TE), a global leader in connectivity, announces a strategic partnership with the National Power Training Institute of Nigeria (NAPTIN) with a goal to provide critical expertise and workforce training essential for the country’s power sector.

Recently, Nigeria’s power sector has experienced setbacks due to the inadequacy of infrastructure and poor output of energy efficiency throughout the sector. TE, which is a global leader in providing reliable and cost-effective products and solutions for the electrical power industry, is now partnering with NAPTIN to develop solutions to the challenges facing the sector, through the training and development of local talent. TE experts will work with NAPTIN’s trainers and provide technical training on the connectivity required to enable power systems. The training will be based on TE’s high-quality products and solutions including the industry-leading Raychem product line. Once complete, NAPTIN will organize training sessions at its facilities for local installers.
