Brief History
Kabarnet MTC dates back to 1990 when it was established as MTC at the then Baringo District Development Institute now GTI Baringo.

It started by training certificate in Enrolled Community Nursing and Public Health Technicians upto 1999 when PHT bore Diploma in Public Health (in-service) in the year 2000. The Government of Kenya during the same period through the MOH had proposed to build MTC Kabarnet on a plot of 8 acres set aside next to Kabarnet District Hospital for the same project.

The project physically commenced on 13th May 1991 with then R. Valley P. C. Mr. Yusuf Hajji laying the foundation stone on 22nd May, 1991.

Though the project is still incomplete to date, we were able to shift from GTI to our new building next to the District Hospital on 19th February 2004.

The college is located in Kabarnet town, next to Kabarnet District Hospital. The campus is a few kilometres from the scenic Kerio Valley and Lakes Baringo and Bogoria.
