It continued for about five days from 11 to the 15th of September, 2021, at the Erbil International Hotel.

Six Iraqi and the Kurdistan Region universities, which were: Al-Furat Al-Awsat Technical University, Northern Technical University, University of Mosul, Ararat Institute, and Nobel Institute, participated in this training course under the title “Trends of Business: Market Mechanics and Future Careers.”

The training course aims to train the trainers (TOT), the Academic Staff to provide courses that serve in training the students, vulnerable from the host community, refugees, and internally displaced people (IDP) and Youths (hereafter, referred to the students’ beneficiaries).

It is worth mentioning that the Erbil Polytechnic University and SPARK International Organization had signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to support refugee students by opening such training courses.
