How much does this training cost?

We offer the Microsoft Azure Certified Data & AI track for €8,500 ex VAT (€10,285 incl. VAT). Of course, that is not the real value of this course: it is much higher. If we were to use a commercial rate, this course would cost € 10,444 ex VAT (€ 12,637.24 incl. VAT). But Techionista has a mission: we want to give as many women as possible the opportunity to retrain for a job in ICT. Therefore we want to keep the financial threshold as low as possible to participate in this program. Fortunately, we have found a great partner in Microsoft. Thanks to their support, we have been able to reduce the actual study costs considerably: to € 8,500 ex VAT. As a participant, you pay a contribution of € 3,500 ex VAT (€ 4,235 incl. VAT) before the training starts. The remainder of € 5,000 ex VAT (€ 6,050 incl. VAT) is parked until after the training. If you find a job within 5 months after graduating from the Microsoft Azure Certified Data & AI Track, your new employer can take over the remaining study costs. From experience, we know that almost all employers don’t mind. If you accept a job with an employer who does not want to take over the remaining study costs from you, you will have to pay the amount back to us yourself (possibly in installments, with a maximum of 1 year). In the unlikely event that you are unable to find a paid job within five months of graduating, we will waive the remaining study costs. You will then only have paid the personal contribution of € 3,500 ex VAT.
Are you a self-employed person? Then you also pay a contribution of € 3,500 ex VAT. Do you see yourself as a job seeker, and do you plan to look for new (temporary) work during and/or after the training? Then we also park the remaining study costs of € 5,000 ex VAT for you until after the training. If you find a new (temporary) job within five months of graduating, you will repay the remaining study costs of € 5,000 ex VAT to us in consultation (possibly in monthly installments, with a maximum of one year). If you do not find a new (temporary) job within 5 months after graduating, the remaining study costs will be canceled; you will then only have paid your own contribution of € 3,500 ex VAT.
Do you already have a job at the start of this course? This course is primarily designed for people who are looking for a new job (or freelance jobs). Suppose you are employed somewhere at the time of this course, but you would like to find a new job after finishing it; then we consider you unemployed. In that case, you also pay a contribution of € 3,500 ex VAT. We park the remaining study costs until after the course so that your future employer can take them over from you. (See also ‘How expensive is the Microsoft Azure Certified Data & AI track?’) If you are employed somewhere and also not planning to change jobs, it is the intention that your current employer, or you yourself, pay the total study costs; being € 8.500 (ex VAT).
