September. An agreement executed between the Instituto Nacional de Aprendizaje (INA – National Learning Institute) and CODE Development Group will open the doors of Life Sciences to individuals interested in working in this world-class industry.

Under this Agreement, the Western Central Regional Headquarters of INA will develop an ongoing training program for people residing in the Western cantons, who are interested in pursuing a career in the medical industry.

“Because Life Sciences is an ever-evolving industry, we need our current and future human talent to keep pace with the technologies that companies are demanding from us. We hope that the diversity of courses offered by INA will have an impact on the new skills and knowledge that employees will need to face the challenges of the industry”, said Carlos Wong, representative of CODE and General Manager of Coyol Free Zone.

The framework cooperation agreement between INA and CODE Development Group will also define research areas of interest to the country within the Life Sciences sector, thus strengthening business competitiveness and the technical-scientific capabilities of the country’s human resources.

As a party to the agreement, CODE will promote the creation of quality employment within the companies that are part of the group, and will provide the physical spaces for the implementation of vocational training services. In turn, INA will be the liaison for the development of employment promotion projects and will provide its expertise in the technical training of individuals.

CODE Development Group is one of the developers of Coyol Free Zone, and will build the Evolution Free Zone in Tacares de Grecia.

CODE, through one of its companies, Coyol Free Zone, has had a close relationship with INA since 2014, the year from when it has offered free training services to nearly 2,000 employees of companies in the Park, by means of courses such as: Quality Inspector, Good Manufacturing Practices for Medical Devices, Conversational English for the Business Sector, Customer Service, Information and Communication Technology Operator, Human Resource Management, and Basic Occupational Health.
