The Ministry of Employment, Research and Universities, through the Regional Employment and Training Service (SEF), begins in April a total of 188 free training courses for employment with 2,785 places. Specifically, 131 courses for the unemployed and 57 for employed workers will be launched in 26 municipalities in the region, according to sources from the regional government in a statement.
In total there will be 41,799 hours of training that are divided into a wide range of specialties that will allow students to acquire or improve skills and abilities in 21 different professional families such as caring for dependent people, commerce and marketing and industrial automation, among others.
With regard to the offer for unemployed people, the ‘Reactiva’ online courses, a specific program that the SEF, with co-financing from the European Social Fund, allocates both job seekers and people in ERTE total or partial. These are courses related to the use of new technologies and their application in business and commerce, as well as training in prevention against Covid-19 in the hospitality and tourism sectors.
The general director of the SEF, Marisa López Aragón, explained that “with the launch of this training program we intend that people who have seen their employment situation affected as a result of the pandemic have specific training that allows them to rejoin the labor market ».
For their part, employed workers will be able to recycling knowledge or training in new specialties that require professional sectors such as transport or agriculture. In this last sector are framed, for example, the courses ‘Defense against pests and diseases in organic farming’ and ‘Saving and energy efficiency in agriculture’, which will start in Murcia this month.
