December 28 1999

The Vocational and Industrial Institute in Taiz is organizing regular short-term training courses. The 10 courses recently held covered many specialties. Over 1,000 people applied to attend the course, but only 240 candidates were accepted through an admission test.
Mr. Saif Mohammed Ahmed, director of the institute, said: “These intensive courses will provide people with a better chance to get jobs and improve the skill of those who already have their own businesses.”
In the future, each course will last for 4 months and there will be 4 courses per year where the trainees have to study 5 days a week.
“All the courses are provided free of charge.” Courses will continue immediately after Ramadhan.
