Aptech Worldwide - one of the leading global providers of IT education - opened its training center in Bratislava where through the Non-profit organization Aptech Europe (Nezisková organizácia Aptech Europe) provides education in the area of information, communication and computer technology. Aptech has more than 25 years of experience in IT education and is active in 40 countries - in total there are more than 1,000 centers worldwide.

What digital skills training or activities do you or does your organization offer (if any)?
Non-profit organization Aptech Europe offers a 2-year certified program Aptech Certified Computer Professional (ACCP), which in a practical way prepares qualified IT specialists with focus on web and mobile software applications development using a number of programming languages and technologies. The study is conducted by foreign professional and certified instructors also in English. Students over the period of six trimesters/semesters attend more than 1,000 hours of classes and each trimester/semester is completed by a real project and exam. Despite the high intensity of the study, students can work during their education thanks to a flexible study schedule. The education is accepted as part of university study (Bachelor's degree) by several foreign universities, in cooperation with a Slovak university we launched a pilot project of a 3-year Bachelor's degree course combined with the ACCP program in Bratislava in September 2012. For more information you can visit www.itstudium.sk. For September 2013 we plan the launch of a foreign Bachelor's degree course combined with the ACCP program in Slovakia. In cooperation with specific IT companies we would like to prepare a follow-up Master’s degree courses in engineering disciplines based on requirements of our partnering IT companies.
