CICCOPN is committed to the promotion of vocational training aimed at developing the human resources of the Building and Public Works sector. Its main addressees are the workers from AICCOPN-associated companies, all candidates wishing to embrace a profession within this sector and all managers and workers in general from AICCOPN or assigned by IEFP, I.P.
In strict fidelity to this goal for over thirty years, CICCOPN organizes training actions for Young people and Adults who are candidates for qualified employment, promoting their access to the labour market and the improvement of their technical skills and knowledge, focusing on the companies’ real training needs in terms of recruitment of new professionals and also on the expectations of all those wanting to increase and certify their qualifications as a way of responding to the high level of competitiveness of an ever more global Building sector. With identical commitment, CICCOPN provides actives within this sector, managers, technicians and workmen, with the opportunity to access multiple continuous training actions for professional adjustment, recycling, development and specialization, driven by the purpose of lifelong learning.
CICCOPN’s training plan seeks to minimize the existing lacks in the Building and Public Works sector in terms of training, educational levels and certification, as a strategy to overcome qualification deficits through an adequately-structured intervention.
The challenge of double certification, an increasingly important reality in Portugal, opened up new perspectives for vocational certification enriched by school equivalence. This new path led to widespread adjustments in the nature, goals and addressees defined for CICCOPN's activity, and stimulated this Centre to define new professional settings and profiles while at the same time privileging the increment in education.
CICCOPN proposes to implement flexible solutions as a response to the expectations created by double certification, favouring duly-certified professional and school qualifications.
