For people in western North Brabant: DigiPower ‘Green Deal’

Do you live or work in North Brabant? Then you can get a 50% discount on our courses! Half of your training will be paid from the DigiPower ‘Green Deal’ subsidy; the other half will be paid by a co-financier. This can be an employer, the UWV if you are unemployed, or by yourself. Techionista Academy is one of only four trainers in the Netherlands to be allowed to run this – EU-funded – subsidy. Good deal right?

Training voucher for people in Twente

Do you work or live in Twente? Then you can apply for a training voucher via With this, you can get 50% of the training costs reimbursed up to a maximum of € 2,500. The other 50% you pay yourself, or can be taken over by a government agency such as the UWV, or by your employer. Note: keep in mind that it takes 4 to 6 weeks before you know whether you are eligible for a training voucher. Your training at Techionista Academy may only start after that. Watch the video above for more information.
