Abstract: The study investigated the effect of training in Information and Communication Technology (ICT) on utilization among extension managers in the Niger delta area of Nigeria. Data was collected with the aid of questionnaire from 87 randomly selected Extension managers in the study area. This study found that Extension managers received training in computer operations, computer appreciation, email, knowledge of software and hardware. Trainings received were through workshops, short courses and personal development and these enhanced the level of utilization of ICT among Extension managers. Based on the findings of the study it was recommended that intensified training on the use of ICT should be encouraged. Also, adequate funding and investment in ICT should be pursued especially in skills acquisition of Extension Mangers especially because of their strategic roles in decision making in Extension organizations.
