The training system of our organization
We have been organizing courses since 1997. From 1997 to 2008 our courses were attended by 58 000 teachers at 1700 different venues throughout the country. More than 300 teachers are qualified in informatics teaching specialists.
Our training programmes have been devised based on the needs of schools. Following the preparation satisfying the requirements of accreditation, the courses are held by the IT teachers of the respective schools, on the premises, which is
- practical: the training meets local requirements, adjusting time is easier, substitution is not a problem, and the students do not have to commute.
- economical: as a non-profit organization – in accordance with the tax laws – we provide our services at a low price. We spend 88% of government subsidies on the fee of the course and the rent of the rooms, therefore this money gets back to the schools. The remaining 12% of the income covers the activities of the association.
- reliable: our accredited courses satisfy government regulations
- flexible: our course modules are built on each other, enabling participants to join and close the courses at different levels.
