Kenya Ports Authority Bandari College

The Kenya Port Authority Bandari College has its own Maritime College in Mombasa where specialized training is available not only to its staff but to a much wider community.

The college was founded in 1980 to provide training courses for all members of staff, from dock workers to senior managers. Over the years, however, the college has opened its doors to a much wider community of students and has a national and even international reach.

Bandari College is a modern building located on Mombasa Island with a fine view of the Kilindini Channel.
