Fiends College Kaimosi officially became ISO 9001:2118 on June 14, 2013 when it received the certificate from KEBS. This certification was significant considering that the college was among the first TVET institutions to be certified hence setting the pace for its sister institutions especially in the western Kenya region.
By embracing Quality Management Systems (QMS), the College has re-engineered its operations with a strong focus on quality services that exceed customer expectations
Friends College has a long history dating back to 1971 when it was started as a collaborative effort by the Quaker church missionaries from the United States and the local community. It was later on taken over by the government of Kenya, thus becoming a fully fledged public institution.


With Clerkson N. Barasa (the Principal) at the helm, the college is considerably expanding its physical facilities. He has overseen the construction of a modern science complex and a hostel for male students. Currently, the construction of an engineering workshops complex to cater for Mechanical, Electrical/Electronics and Automotive courses is on course. A hospitality complex with self contained guest rooms, conference facilities, Food and Beverage Management workshops, lecture rooms and offices is nearing completion.
Towards the end of the year 2013, the college received state of the art training equipment for automotive engineering.
The college is also making deliberate effort to enhance its information and communication technology capacity. We now have a functioning e-library and well equipped computer laboratories. An information management system has been installed and more modules are being activated in order to enable the college become fully computerized in its operations.

With these developments, Friends College Kaimosi now has the ability and capacity to respond to emerging market training needs by diversifying its training programmes with a focus on engineering courses both at diploma and certificate level. In line with this, the college has launched new engineering courses in electrical and electronics, mechanical, Building Construction, Plumbing and automotive. More courses are due to be launched in due course.
FCK intends to actively play its part in contributing towards the country realizing its Vision 2030, by providing access to high quality and industry relevant training opportunities to Kenyans. We intend to achieve this by strengthening our linkages with industry and ensuring quality training.
The college is also a power house in co-curricular activities and has consistently been ranked among the top performers both at regional and national KETTISO tournaments.
