A very interesting option for those who wish to join one of these offered courses is to participate in the Unified Vocational and Technological Education Selection System (Sisutec).

Sisutec

Sisutec is the selection process carried out by the federal government through the Ministry of Education (MEC) and is similar to the Unified Selection System (SISU), where public and private institutions offer free positions in technical courses throughout US.
