We were born in the early Seventies from the Reggio Emilia Chambers of Trade will. We become Training and Service Center of the Chambers of Trade in 1994 after the entrance of all the Emilia Romagna Chambers of Trade, Emilia Romagna and Italian Union of Chambers of Commerce in the team. In 1999 we have been honored from the Ministry of Labour as National Institution of Professional Training (L.40 of 1987).
