To encourage particular candidates to register for the Technician Certification and Licensing Test as well as to cooperate with the promotion of “The New Southbound Policy”, the Ministry of Labor, since January 1, 2017, has relaxed the subsidy restriction of specific candidates’ qualification registration for the Technician Certification and Licensing test.
