Federal Technical and Vocational Education and Training Institute (FTVETI) was established in 2011 by The Council of Ministers Proclamation 245/2011 to produce highly professional and technically efficient TVET teachers and leaders. The driving force for establishing FTVETI , among other things , was that there were no institution to train competent and sufficient technical and vocational teachers and leaders based on the outcome based system and occupational standards.

At the time of its inception, the institute ran degree programs in 5 occupational sectors namely: automotive, construction, electronics/electrical, information and communication technology and manufacturing technology, and two years later railways and surveying technology departments were opened. Those programs embraced ten specializations, namely, Automotive, Building, Road, Water, ICT, Electrical and Control, Electronics and Communications, Manufacturing, Rolling Stock and Surveying.
