Vocational education aims to optimally train students (from the age of 16) to the professions of the future, so that they can meet the demands of the Aruban and international labor market.

At Colegio EPI, vocational education is flexible, derived from a revised vocational qualification structure (HKS). All programs are in line with continuing education (local and international) and have been established in consultation with the labor market. This means that students can be better served with a tailor-made educational offer, with recognition of what they can already do, based on flexible standards and composed of modules.
