Pass the Test COC Training Centres
Tariku Tadesse completed level three training at a private technical and vocational education (TVET) training centre in 2012. From the time he graduated from college, he has taken the centre of competence (COC) test two times, with unsuccessful results.
“I took the previous exams without any additional courses, except for the college classes that I had taken. But now I am going to a training centre for preparation for the exams that await me,” he says.
The introduction of COC in the country in the Ethiopian Millennium in 2008, saw the mandatory testing of college graduates in level one, two, three and four. In accordance with the COC, many in Addis Abeba were opening tutor centres for the training of these failing candidates.
One of the tutorial fields that many attend is the nursing and health science training centre. Fortune talked to one of the trainers who wanted to stay anonymous. This person, who started giving training in the field since the introduction of the COC, says that the demand for such schools amongst the candidates is increasing. He stationed his training centre around Kirkos Church in the Kirkos District.
“When I began giving the training, I had only 10 students who paid 150 Br to 300 Br, according to their level of training, of whom only seven passed the COC exam,” he said.
When he first got into this business, he did not have enough capital, so he collected the money that the candidates paid him in advance for the training, and rented classes from colleges and some public hospitals for the space he used.
“I previously had no place for the training, so I rented rooms for the practical and theoretical training,” he says.
Now he has seasonal trainees, whose numbers range from 100 to 150, that pay 300 Br for level two, 350 Br for level three and 400 Br for level four.
This 32 year old man has taught in many private health colleges, including Medco, Central, Universal, Kare and Kiamed for nine years before the COC was introduced. This long time spent in the teaching position gave him the opportunity to get in touch with many in the industry and maintain a network for the business in which he is engaged.
He gives a maximum of a week’s theoretical training and three weeks of practical training in full day classes. He uses dolls for the practical classes.
“I began buying the materials in 2010, as I saw an increase in the demand for the training,” he says.
He also uses model exams that he got when he was an assessor at the Occupational Competence Assessment & Certification Centre (OCACC), and the questions that the students bring to discuss in the classroom.
There are many businesses that flourished in the market as COC training centres. Another man from the Megenagna area, who also wanted to stay anonymous, owns a centre where he gives language and computer training.
“We train in the basic clerical level one training, focusing on very specific points, namely occupational health and safety, and basic computer training in Microsoft Word and Excel, as these are the major parts that appear on the examination,” he says.
A man from Megenagna has five students and he is on the way to getting a license from the city’s trade and industry bureau. Now he trains his students for 15 days without having a license. He claims that the training centre began service a month ago, but his advertisements on the poles and boards in the city have faded, showing they have been up for a long time.
Although there are such training centres in the city, the OCACC says that these bodies are illegal: “many don’t have trade licenses, and they train in their own houses. Some of these are previous assessors that left the centre and know all the working and assessing processes of the organisation,” says Girum Areda, the centre’s communications officer.
When looking at the trend in training in the first four years of the assessment since its start in 2008, of 90,290 candidates that were assessed for the 12 sectors, only 15,520 candidates were found to be competent. The 12 sectors of assessment that the centre offers are agriculture, automotive, business, construction, culture, electronics and electricity, health, hotel and tourism, information communication technology, leather technology, manufacturing, and textiles and garments.
The OCACC has identified seven trainers of competence, and will begin legal procedures, according to sources at the centre. But this is out of the scope of responsibilities of the centre, which only has a responsibility to choose assessors, registering candidates, issuing assessment ID, selecting assessment centres, and certifying the candidates after the assessment.
The body that is responsible for the control of the training centres and issuing licenses for the trainers, is the TVETA. It claims that there are no such organisations as COC training centres.
“There are only organisations that make the trainees acquire knowledge, not make them prepared only for the examinations,” says Yared Kassa, an official in the agency under the Institutions’ Capacity Building Core Process.
According to Addis Abeba Technical & Vocational Education Training Agency (TVETA) data, there are 362 training centres in the city, of which 58 are controlled under the centre, while the rest are under the city district level.
The agency is now in a screening process, between the legal trainers and the illegal ones according to Yared.
Be it legally or illegally, the coming of the COC has created job opportunities and the emergence of new businesses, and it has become common to see posters in passage ways and on electric poles and advertisement boards in the city with the text “for COC candidates” showing that there are many using the gap created by the new system to generate income.
“I am planning to attend these training centres as they have some modules and question models that make people ready for the exams,” says Tariku, hoping to pass the next COC exam.
The exam, given by the centre was allegedly taken out of the premises by the people pretending to take the exam. They are paid to do so, according to a source at the centre.
“We only have a few versions of the exams and this would not have happened if we had had enough versions for security purposes,” says Girum.
