The Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NiMet) is intensifying implementation of Quality Management Standards (QMS) across departments in the agency.

In a statement made available to Transport Day, this followed the approval by the DG/CEO of the agency, Prof. Charles Anosike, for the training of additional personnel as internal auditors by the Standard Organization of Nigeria (SON), preparatory to migration to the current International Standard ISO 21001:2018 for Educational Organization Management System.

Speaking at the ISO 29990:2010 standard internal audit of processes at NiMet’s Regional Training Centre (RTC) in Oshodi, Lagos, the Head, Quality Management System (QMS), at NiMet, Usman Abdulrahman said; “NiMet Management under the leadership of Professor Charles Anosike has prioritized staff capacity development and is putting in place processes to improve the services provided by NiMet”.

According to him, “Internal audit of NiMet’s RTC Oshodi which took place from the 20th – 21st June 2024, against the ISO 29990:2010 standard ensures that the design, development, and delivery of the learning experience we provide at RTC meet the ISO requirements and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) standards.

“The internal audit of processes at the RTC also provides a transparent analysis of our programs; Basic Meteorological Observation Course (BMOC), Basic Instruction Package for Meteorological Technicians (BIP – MT), Basic Meteorological Package for Meteorologists (BIP – M) and other specialized training courses in Meteorology and Agro – meteorology.

“The ISO 29990 standard is implemented at the RTC Oshodi to provide a unified standard for learning service provision and life-long learning experience for interested parties in meteorological services of Nigeria, Western Africa, Africa and large centers around the World”, Mr Abdulrahman noted.
