National Training Center for Hospital Maintenance Technicians (CNFTMH)
The National Training Center for Hospital Maintenance Technicians (CNFTMH) in Diourbel is a result of cooperation between the Government of Senegal and the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany. It was created in 1983, and officially recognized in 1993 by ministerial ordinance 93-108 of 02 February 1993.
By creating the National Training Center for Hospital Maintenance Technicians, the Senegalese authorities had understood the issues of the time. The aim was to train on the place and in sufficient number, the civil servants, able to take charge of maintenance in our hospital structures and reduce dependence on the private sector.
For this reason, the CNFTMH has been modeled on the German schools, whose programs have been adapted as needed through wide-ranging consultations involving all national and international partners and stakeholders for the training of maintenance technicians.
Today, the CNFTMH is at a crossroads. It has changed paradigms to maintain its leading position in the field of hospital and biomedical maintenance training in Francophone Africa. Because its past, its experience and its expertise, it aims to continue to play a key role in the training of the African elites in the field of hospital maintenance.
To do this, it seeks to adapt its intervention strategy to the new context of biomedical engineering education characterized, among other things, by an explosion in the demand for training of senior technicians and engineers.
The CNFTMH declines the vision, the missions and the specific values which base its rise in power, in the field of the hospital and biomedical maintenance around the objectives of teaching and research's conditions, with taking into account the wishes of the potential users who are in the hospital structures.
