CONALEP is a technical school that implements the German Dual Education program, which, during its last two years, trains the students (as apprentices) in different companies. Likewise, CONALEP offers the “Trayectoria Técnica” [Technichal Career] program, in which  the students receive mentoring on different business- related topics during the last year of their studies.

In 2006, Instituto Estatal de la Capacitación [State Training Institute]  (IECA) emerged as an organization capable of performing an important role in training personnel for work.

In 2018, Centro de Capacitación de Alta Tecnología [High Technology Training Center] arrived at Marabis Castro del Río.

Likewise, this Center also trains technicians to become highly qualified to develop new technologies for the generation of renewable energies.
