Presentation9 Basic The plan was to take up to 250 candidates through the program. When the course was finished, we had managed 150. This was unfortunately due to lack of interest from other Norwegian companies to be partners in the project. The candidates should be skilled in their profession and be able to document their knowlege level by showing certificates or exam papers from relevant schools befor enetring the program. The candidates present level of English was also important to verify during the scanning process
