Answer: The Customer Reference Number can be accessed on the institution or trainer dashboard after logging in on the TVET MIS portal. The number is also accessible on the second payment option for Mpesa in the payments section.
A public TVET institution shall not be required to obtain a Letter of No Objection. However, a private TVET institution shall be required to obtain the Letter of No Objection through the MIS by following the procedure outlined below:
i) Propose a name suitable for your institution and submit it to TVETA for approval. A proposed name should not fall under the following categories:
Misleading names, for example, Upendo Training Institute and Upendo Training College. Where Upendo Training Institute already exists, clients may be duped to think that Upendo Training College is a campus of Upendo Training Institute. Same or deceptively similar name. For example, the difference between a proposed name and an existing name is the use of uppercase or lowercase letters, the use of superscripts, subscripts, letters or numerals.
Reserved name. For example, a name that may create a false implication of government affiliation. Use of words that commonly denote government organizations including but not limited to ‘Agency’, ‘Authority’, ‘County’
ii) Obtain a “letter of no objection” on the suitability of the name from the Authority.
iii) Register the name of the institution through the E-citizen portal. You will be prompted to attach your letter of no objection.
iv) The E-citizen portal will then generate a business name certificate.
There are three payment gateways on MIS as follows:
i) Mpesa STK push
ii) Mpesa Payment through PayBill 894135 and account Number unique for every institution.
iii) KCB Payment Option.
Option 1: Mpesa STK push
Option 2: Mpesa Payment through PayBill 894135
Option 3: KCB Payment Option
Payment through this option and depositing of a cheque to the above account will require sending of a scanned copy of the bank deposit slip to email@example.com for issuing of an official payments receipt.
Once your application is approved and your name is entered into the TVETA register as a Trainer/Assessor/Verifier, you will receive an email notification. A copy of your license will immediately be available for download from your TVET MIS account.
