HELOG Academy has opened its new training facility in Liberia.

Dear valuable Reader,

HELOG Academy e. V. is proud to announce the opening of its new academy in Liberia.

Vice President Boakai (see picture left), Hon. Min. of Youth and Sports, the German Ambassador and other speakers have expressed the importance of technical and vocational education during the opening and commencement ceremony in Liberia. By creating this private modern facility and the unique training concept, HELOG fills a gap in vocational education.

The current program started in January 2016 training 28 students over a duration of 18 months whereby after completion students will be certified as Industrial Mechanics. The course is based on dedicated elements of the German Dual System with reputable partners from the Liberian industry. State of the art equipment and tooling, well designed curriculums as well as modern IT infrastructure sets the grounds for each student to upgrade skills to international standards.
