Dual Elements

  • In both projects AIEx accompanies participants not only with training and certification preparation, but also with the requirements from the business sector, which enable the participants to be better equipped for the business world and how they can become competitive in the local and international markets.

  • We collaborate closely with major local businesses and international business operating in Albania, to demonstrate the standards required, as well as offering opportunities for employment.

  • AIEx is not merely a qualification’s institute, but our aim is to be the bridge between what the businesses require and the quality further education provides.
