Deputy Director of the Department of Overseas Labour Management under the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs Pham Viet Huong said that, within the framework of the Vietnam-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement, the EPA program has officially implemented by the two countries since 2012. The Prime Minister assigned the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs, directly the Department of Overseas Labour Management being the focal unit to implement this program.
According to Mr. Huong, after 10 years of implementation, the program has selected and trained Japanese language for 2,012 Vietnamese candidates for nursing and orderly candidates to work in Japan. Up to now, 1,543 candidates have worked at hospitals and caring facilities for the elderly in Japan.
Candidates participating in the EPA program have the opportunity to take the national certification exam of Japan, which can be long-term work in this country.
Through the national nursing certification exams in Japan, the nursing and orderly candidates of Vietnam have affirmed their superior ability compared to the nurses and orderlies of some other sending countries in the region. Candidates from Vietnam have the highest certification rate, with more than 70% passing the nursing exam, and more than 90% passing the orderly candidates.
The EPA program is a good and attractive job opportunity for Vietnam's nursing and orderly graduates to improve their skills and earn good income in Japan. This activity also creates favourable conditions for graduates to find suitable jobs in Japan./.
