Presiding over the graduation ceremony, TEVETA executive director Wilson Makulumiza Nkhoma said it was the desire of President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika to have community colleges in all the districts and constituencies.
Turning his message to the graduates, he urged them to be "people of integrity" if they are to survive and win trust of people who will be in need of their services.
He appealed to them to produce work of high quality, if they are to beat the competition out there, saying "people base their judgment on the quality of output."
The ED asked the communities around the institution to take full ownership of the college.
To the business community Nkhoma advised them to seize the opportunity by constructing houses which students and teachers can rent, that will in turn help to the development of the district.
In his remarks, Chitipa District Commissioner, Humphrey Gondwe, said the council will provide opportunities to young people who graduated, so that the skills they acquired should be put to use immediately.
Gondwe urged the continuing students to work hard.
TEVETA donated a set of tools to the students as a starter pack.
