In the initial round of skill tests conducted for positions in the construction industry in Israel, 1700 individuals have been selected for employment.

The Sri Lanka Bureau of Foreign Employment (SLBFE) stated that over 50% of the applicants were qualified.

The first round of testing took place from February 18th to 26th at the Industrial Engineering Training Institute in Katubedda.

Representatives from the Israeli government conducted these assessments and interviews. The tests aimed to evaluate applicants’ ability to meet the specific needs of the Israeli construction industry, with a particular focus on skills in floor tiling and other relevant areas.

The process was conducted independently and free from external interference.

Applicants who registered through the Sri Lanka Bureau of Foreign Employment were called for the assessments and interviews. Mr. Suneth Athukorala, Coordinating Secretary of the Minister of Labour, visited the testing site on the 26th to observe the progress.

During the visit, Israeli representatives expressed satisfaction and commended the skill level of the applicants. Consequently, another round of testing with their participation is scheduled for the coming weeks.

The SLBFE also stated that applicants can obtain skill verification from any recognized competency testing center and submit it to the SLBFE head office or a regional office to obtain registration.
