Walter BIM Academy announces its partnership with the MarketMakers Project: Cutting the unemployment rate through specific profession-related courses!

During the last week, Walter BIM Academy signed a contract with the project MarketMakers, which is supported by the Swiss Government. After very detailed negotiations, MarketMakers identified Walter BIM Academy as one of the most promising initiatives that can contribute to the growth of the private sector and the creation of new job opportunities for young people, which is also the ultimate goal of the project.

MarketMakers is a project that has been implemented since 2012. The duration of the project is eight and a half years, divided into two phases. The goal of the project is to support solutions to the issue of sustainable and functional youth employment within four selected sectors: IT, agriculture, tourism and business process outsourcing services. More information about the project can be found at www.marketmakers.ba.

The newly opened Walter BIM Academy is the right place for those who want to improve their engineering skills and make themselves professionally more competitive on the market. In addition to BIM courses and trainings for using Autodesk software, we also offer education in the field of IT, management, communication and similar fields. Walter BIM Academy aims to enable young people all over the world to acquire the knowledge that is in high demand on the global market, which can easily be exported through the Internet using outsourcing. Therefore, courses in the field of IT and BIM are the most common in the diverse offer at Walter BIM Academy, which is gradually increasing.

In cooperation with the MarketMakers project, Walter BIM Academy will focus on the following:

1. Creation of a unique web platform for engineers

On this platform, engineers will be able to register for their chosen course, access online courses, get a great deal of cutting-edge information from the world of engineering, apply for participation in numerous events organized by the Academy, get information on currently open job positions related to their profession, create their professional profile, which will be accessed by a large number of companies from the region, etc.

2. Creating and promoting the Guarantee Fund for unemployed participants of Walter BIM Academy

Beneficiaries of the Guarantee Fund will get the opportunity to pay 50% of the course price initially in order to reserve their place in the course they want to attend, while the remaining 50% of the price will need to be paid six months after the beginning of the course when they find employment.

3. Registration of the Autodesk Education and Certification Center

Walter BIM Academy will become a registered Autodesk Education and Certification Center by the end of the year, and all our students will be able to become Autodesk Certified Professionals.

4. Building an innovation center for engineers

During this joint initiative, the goal of both partners, MarketMakers and Walter BIM Academy, is to build an innovation center for engineers interested in improving their professional qualities and the environment we live in. In the new premises of the Walter BIM Academy, besides the space reserved for courses, there will also be room for various events, workshops, meetings, competitions etc.

We are sure that this will be a very successful project that will lead to a large number of new and better job opportunities. Join us and be part of the movement.
