Free IT training for Hungarians

The Ministry of Innovation and Technology first launched the “Restart Program” two years ago to provide free IT retraining to those who wanted to change careers.

It has been announced that starting April 29, those interested can apply again for the third IT training program, MTI reports. 

This time, 10,000 people will have the opportunity to improve their digital skills and learn the basics of programming, while more than 300 more will be able to go on to the basic vocational training courses starting in the summer. 

The distance learning program will take four weeks to complete once registered and will involve between 2 and 6 hours of work per day, depending on participants’ existing IT skills and the time they can devote to the training.

During the crisis, more than 72,000 people registered for free IT training and more than 11,000 obtained a certificate. 

The best performers in the previous two phases of the program were given the opportunity to obtain marketable skills and a nationally recognized qualification in four different IT fields with 100 percent support. 

More than 1,600 people have already taken part in these courses, and nearly 1,000 of those who have passed have been offered the opportunity to obtain further vocational certificates in advanced and manufacturing-specific courses, the ministry’s statement said.
