  • Work with partner stakeholders, such as professional bodies and employers, with the aim of ensuring that our programmes are fit-for-purpose.
  • Whenever possible we seek to offer coterminous awards; that is, programme of study which leads to both an academic award and professional certification. As such, and where appropriate, programme design is informed by both professional body requirement and academic benchmarks. Also, we seeks to work in partnership with professional bodies in the initial approval and periodic review of our programme of study.


On completion of the prescribed training and having passed all the required courses, students may sit in for their professional examination. The examination is administered by the professional bodies, which on passing the required components of the exam would award the candidate certificates and diploma appropriate to the course studied thereby allowing the candidate to be duly registered and licensed to practice or use same for direct entry admission into degree programs in the Universities. By the end of 2014, admissions into CAHST would be strictly through JAMB.
