You know, one of our 2023 goals was to establish 100 Experiment Technology Workshops in all 81 provinces. We have put these workshops, where we have provided free technology training to our students for 3 years, into service in 30 provinces. Now we are establishing 36 new Experimental Technology Workshops in 27 provinces. The students who will participate in the trainings that will start in October will be determined by a written and applied two-stage exam. The first stage is the written exam. “The applications will start today. Applications will continue until July 4.
