What is it?
The "KMO-portefeuille" is a subsidy system installed by the Flemish government which aims at supporting small and medium Flemish enterprises. The KMO-portefeuille allows subsidies for training and consultancy, strategic advice, advice for international business undertaking and exploring technology. When these services are obtained from accredited suppliers, a company can obtain a total subsidy of €15.000 per year.
Within this system, ps_testware has been accredited for the "training" section. (Click here to view the certificate). The reduction via the KMO-portefeuille is valid for all trainings and courses that ps_testware has to offer, including the open courses in our training center or tailor made trainings for your specific needs.
