OPP Review – Training Courses associated to Professional Internships


The Training Course associated to Professional Internships was launched by the Order approximately six months ago. Since then, 47 editions have taken place in different places throughout the country, such as Lisbon, Porto, Coimbra, Braga, Guimarães, Leiria, Aveiro, Viseu, Faro, Évora, Almada, Funchal, Ponta Delgada and Angra do Heroísmo. To date, 668 applicants have obtained a place and all the editions were held with the maximum number of applicants enrolled.

From the editions launched, 41 have started and 35 have finished. Among the 529 applicants who attended the courses, 551 obtained a pass. Among the 18 applicants who did not obtain a pass, the most common reason was the failure to attend the course (11).

The review of the first semester of Training Courses conducted by the Order, is very positive, with applicants having rated them as very satisfactory in terms of content and the communication skills of the trainers.
