TODAY NICARAGUA NEWS- Lack of technically skilled labour is forcing some companies to bear the cost of training their employees.

Food technology and industrial electronics courses haven arisen precisely in response to the needs of the private sector, which increasingly needs employees with technical training. This was explained to Elnuevodiario.com.ni by Berta Mayela Quintanilla, “… Director General of Fundación Victoria, an organization authorized by the Inatec to offer mid-level technical courses.”

Beekeeping, coffee and cocoa agribusiness and construction are other activities that colleges and universities are starting to invest in to improve the supply of technically skilled labor. In the process of redefining academic offerings, feedback from employers is essential, said Quintanilla.

Alejandro Talavera, human resources manager of the company Nicaragua Machinery Company (Nimac), said that “… companies are having difficulties in finding technicians who can use these new technologies.’The problem is where are the technical schools preparing these technicians for this technology’. Although Nimac has created its technical training center due to demand from the company itself, it then realized that its customers also demanded technical training and support. On the other hand, Talavera admitted that specialized technical training has high costs.

For Nimac, “…The company estimates that training each of its technicians costs about $5,000.”
