Demand for basic education by communities in Bungoma County has led to proliferation of many teacher training colleges. However, safety of learners in these colleges remains a major challenge to all college administrators. This reinforces a widely held view that the management has not fully implemented required safety measures in teacher training colleges. The purpose of this study will be to investigate the level of compliance by management to registration requirements on safety in Primary Teacher Training Colleges in Bungoma County Kenya. The study will be guided by the following objectives: To evaluate the college administration compliance towards registration requirements in regard to physical infrastructure in primary teacher training colleges in Bungoma County. The study concluded that college principals had a high positive compliance towards registration requirement in regard to physical infrastructure of teacher training colleges in Bungoma County. The study recommends that college administrators should enhance compliance on requirements in regard to physical facilities, health, hygiene and requirements concerning land sizes.
