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.
