Teaching Staff. PTCI, in its operation, does not have its own teaching staff. The program is a training framework that uses external resources to ensure the required teachings. In the past, the teaching staff used to come from French-speaking African universities and universities of Europe and North America. For the implementation of this proposed project, Phase II of NPTCI plans to use the same channels.
