In the scope of the program „German-Tunisian Educational Partnership for Orthopedic Technology“ a group of 23 P&O technicians from Tunisia, Mali and Benin, mainly employees of the Center of Orthopedic Appliances from Tunisia, as well as private technicians, enrolled HS educational program in 2012. Practical seminars/workshops for this group are organized at the Max Born Vocational Institute in Germany in order to enable Tunisian practicionaires to compare technical methods and work-place organization in Germany and Tunisia and give impulses for improvements in their local workshops.
