It is never too late to choose a new path and grow both personally and professionally.
Courses are offered to the general public, organizations and various institutions. The courses are mainly for job seekers who want to change professions, learn a trade or find an extra source of income. Several of the courses are financed by the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Labor. The successful students are presented with professional, government certification. We are often approached by various bodies to organize a training course for their workers.
