Since the beginning of the covid-19 pandemic, interest in online courses for vocational training centres has increased. The involvement of employers through e-learning is growing because more and more people understand that for an involved workforce there is a need for continuing education. People who choose to develop their knowledge through an online course are confident in the medium and long term benefits they will have. In a time of controversy and opposition to any initiative, the only thing under our control is our development. The rapid advancement of technology made possible qualitative online learning, and the development of a growing online learning community. Courses such as public procurement expert, project manager, internal auditor, expert accessing European Structural and Cohesion Funds in 2020 and 2021 were among the top choices. A centre such as Extreme Training, Euro Best Team and Alma Vision has been able to take advantage of this favourable period to attract many students by successfully aligning their educational offer with the needs of students. In the opinion of the students, the skills acquired must be useful in the medium and long term.
