The study has aimed at the implementation of non-formal technical and vocational education and training curriculum in Awi zone. Therefore, in the study, a descriptive survey design was used. Methodologically, purposive and availability sampling techniques were used in selecting subjects of the study. The subjects of the study were 60 trainees, 12 NFTVET instructors and 4 woreda and zone education office experts . The data gathered were analyzed, summarized and interpreted by using such statistical tools like percentage and mean. The findings of the study revealed that trainees were not provided training courses in accordance with their choice and voluntary bases. They were not consulted on what training courses they want to attend. As a result, the relevance of the training program to solve the existing problems of adult trainees was found to be low. There were also little attention from the experts of woreda, zonal and even at the regional level given to the program and also lack of trained man power in the fields related to non-formal technical and vocational education and training program were major factors challenging for the proper implementation of NFTVET curriculum in the zone. To minimize some of the problems identified; it is recommended that zonal and woreda education officials need to consider training areas, experiences and skills of the instructors so as to follow the proper implementation of NFTVET curriculum. Again the concerned government officials and other related academician at all level need to show their administrative and professional commitment for the training program in order to achieve the felt needs of adult trainees. Finally, non-formal technical and vocational education and training instructors need to follow major principles of adult learning so as to implement the curriculum properly in order for accomplishing the objectives of the training program in general
