If foreigners in Turkey want to receive vocational training and to develop themselves in this field and certify this, he can participate in the courses opened in Public Education Centers. It is important for foreigners who have applied for international protection in Turkey to have an International Protection Applicant Identity Document during registration. Foreigners can apply to attend the vocational training courses by going to the Public Education Centers in the province or district where they are legally located. Public education centers are free of charge and there is no need to pay any fee for participation in the courses.

Generally, the courses to be opened during the semester are determined by the institutions according to the participation and demand in Public Education Centers. For this reason, we would like to remind you that it is important for foreigners to obtain information about the opening status and starting dates of the courses by applying to the centers themselves.
