This course will provide them with the knowledge that will enhance their performance and increase their success in the hiring process,” indicated Carolina Zamora, Manager of Post-Sales Services at Coyol Free Zone.

The first course called Introduction to the Medical Device Industry is now available at Academia Coyol, and those who complete it fully and pass the evaluations will be placed in a database available to all the companies in the Park.

“The year 2020 was an extremely challenging one: the pandemic impacted countries, companies, entrepreneurs and everyone in general. As a result, one of the great tasks we have had to face has been how to turn these threats into opportunities. Today, Coyol Free Zone has shown how to adapt to this new normal and provide opportunities for growth and training to many people. Likewise, we have showcased the Costa Ricans’ ability to continue on the path of constant and permanent learning, as well as to seek learning opportunities to enter the knowledge economy. We strongly urge people to enroll in these programs and to enhance their employability through quality, free and online training, ” said Andrés Valenciano, Minister of Foreign Trade.

As a result, the Free Zone is working in alliance with FUNDATEC to bring into the virtual world a series of courses that will be focused on acquiring new knowledge applicable to the medical industry. Throughout the year, they will be made known through the platform.
