Mechanism of Work for Specialized Training



1. SMEs wishing to hold a specialized training session for their business can submit a written application through the web under Forms/Application for Support, by email, fax or postal mail. The written application must contain specific content to be found at Specialized Training Proposal Content . Next, the NAFES team will make a site visit in order to prepare a diagnostic study evaluating the qualified SME for support.


2. NAFES qualifies local training firms to promote NAFES support and to provide services to SMEs (Details can be found at Accreditation Terms).


3. A proposal is submitted by the local training firm on behalf of the training needs of the SME. It is reviewed, accepted or declined by the NAFES Supervisory Board.  If approved, an agreement will be signed by 3 parties involved (SME, Local training firm & NAFES). A follow-up on the project by NAFES technical staff is conducted in order to do disbursement of payments related to the training in accordance with the agreement signed.


4. In case of proposal been rejected an apology letter from the Fund will be sent accordingly.
