The facility will train personnel in the field who will be sent to communities where such services have been lacking for some time now. It will also feed the two existing clinics in the district with trained health personnel for effective health delivery.

Lectures will start for the first batch of students who gained admission for the 2011/12 academic year by the end of October 2011.

In the interim though, the necessary accommodation have been put in place to house the students, whiles the assembly is putting up more classrooms and dormitories blocks to accommodate expected future applicants.

Rashid Pelpuo and the Interior Minister Dr. Benjamin Kumbour for spearheading the establishment of the training school in the district the second in the three Northern Regions.
