On 03.12.2022., as part of the project "Development and implementation of the employment program through retraining according to the needs of the labor market", which is financed by the EU, the professional training program for people working as a grower and processor of medicinal plants and an agro-tourism employee at the Center for Adult Education at the Biotechnical Faculty of the University of Bihać began. The project is implemented by the Local Employment Partnership of the Una-Sana Canton.
Training for two groups of 20 participants is planned for a duration of four months. The training consists of 180 hours of theoretical and practical classes, conducted by experts in the field of cultivation and processing of medicinal plants and agrotourism. Through the training, participants will be trained to work independently on the cultivation and processing of medicinal plants and the management of an agro-tourism farm, which gives them a chance for easier employment and greater competitiveness on the labor market.
At the end of the training, there will be a final exam on acquired knowledge and skills, and all participants who have passed will receive a Certificate on acquired knowledge and skills in accordance with the Adult Education Act.
