The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has trained over 300 participants in the North West on the newly introduced online platforms to improve communication and ease admission process at tertiary institutions.
The programme tagged “Intensive training and automation of curriculum, accreditation and general administration matters among JAMB regulatory agencies and institutions in the North-West” was declared open by the JAMB Registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede on Monday in Zaria.
The participants who were mainly vice-chancellors, rectors, provosts, registrars and admission officers were drawn across the seven states of the zone.
The JAMB registrar explained that the training was to enlighten institutions and regulatory agencies on the use of the Integrated Brochure and Syllabus System (IBASS) and Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) platforms.

He, therefore, enjoined the institutions to take advantage of the platforms to communicate, adding that the platform had provided a seamless synergy between the key stakeholders in the sector.
Oloyede said the new platform had made the process to be shorter, faster and easier for all stakeholders and broke the jinx of tedious bureaucracy associated with the old system.
Earlier, Prof. Kabir Bala, Vice-Chancellor, Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) Zaria said the training would avail the participants the opportunity to interface with other stakeholders to address the grey areas affecting JAMB admission processes.
