We have teamed up with the Jerusalem Academic Center – Lander Institute, one of the most highly respected Israeli institutes of higher education, and with the LEAP Placement Agency, who will help ACT students to find jobs.
The first courses will start in November 2013 and will include Graphic Design, Web Design, Microsoft Certificate Courses, Technical Writing, Marketing Communications, and Online Marketing Skills, with additional courses being added in January 2014. Courses taught by accredited Lander Institute instructors are recognized for reimbursement from Misrad HaKlita for those Olim who fulfil their criteria.
All ACT courses will be offered separately for men and women, at the Ohr Moshe premises on Nachal Luz.
