    The current FGAE Learning Center has started its capacity building program journey in 1975. The first training program started on March, 31, 1975 with 12 health professionals who were working in MOH, Missionary hospitals & clinics including private health institutions.

    The trainees came from Wellega, Gamugoffa, Sidamo, Illubabure; Addis Ababa & Keffa. During the opening ceremony, H.E Dr Shimelis Adugna has officially opened the training program.
