Question 15- Are you attending or have you ever attended the education system?
[There is an image of question 15]
The education system is the system under the Ministry of Education and the preparation systems that give certifications recognized by the Ministry of Education that is equivalent to different levels of schooling in the education system.
The frequency of professional courses is considered as long as the course is recognized by the Ministry of Education and has an equivalent level in the education system.
The validation system and certification of competencies (RVCC) in the New Opportunity Programs is normally considered part of the educational system. In some cases, for example Senior Universities and language institutes, since they do not have an equivalent in the educational system's level of schooling are not considered to be part of it.
