The aims of the Public Vocational Training Institute (P.V.T.I.) are:

The aims of the Public Vocational Training Institute (D.I.E.K. in greek language) are:

(a) to offer any type of vocational training, either initial or continuing;

(b) to provide the trainees with the appropriate qualifications through imparting scientific, technical, professional and practical knowledge;

(c) to enable them to develop relevant skills so that their professional integration into society is facilitated and their adaptation to the changing needs of the productive process is ensured.

Each training year consists of two independent semesters of training, that is, winter and spring, each consisting of 15 full weeks of training. The winter semester of training begins in October and ends in February and the spring semester begins in February and ends in June. The training at the Public V.T.I. takes place mainly in the afternoon hours.

Trainees attend compulsory theoretical, laboratory and mixed courses. During training, the assessment of learners is attained both by conducting mid-term exams during the semester and by conducting final examinations at the end of the semester.

Trainees who successfully complete their training at the Public V.T.I., receive a Diploma of Vocational Training (educational level 05). After completing the course and obtaining the diploma, trainees from the public I.E.K. can follow a work placement and they are eligible to sit for biannual National Accreditation Examinations (Greek equivalent: Εξετάσεις Πιστοποίησης), both in written and oral form. The names of successful candidates in each examination are published on the EOPPEP (National Organization for the Certificatioin  of Qualifications  and Vocational Guidance) website.

During their studies, trainees get deferment in the fulfillment of their compulsory military service.

In brief, the public IEK offers:

  • Reliable alternative options after high school.
  • Training by well-qualified scientific staff.
  • Studies in modern specialties, paving the way for professional integration in modern professions.
  • Military Service Deferment during studies.
  • A window of opportunities in view of the challenges of our era with initial vocational training based on the inclinations and interests of each individual.
  • Continuing vocational training to facilitate the trainees’ transition from one occupation to another through the continued transmission of theoretical and technical professional knowledge related to productivity as well as their familiarization with new technologies.
  • Certification of vocational training and acquisition of professional rights.
  • A state diploma
  • Contribution to the creation of professionals who, through lifelong learning, can meet the demands and standards of their professional sector.
