The Center for Permanent Education of Politehnica University Timişoara celebrated its 20th anniversary on December 18, 2018, on the occasion for the CEP Educational Forum. The UPT rector, prof. eng Viorel-Aurel Şerban, PhD, Vice-Rector prof. eng. Daniel Dan, PhD, Deputy Mayor of Timisoara, eng. Dan Diaconu, and CEP Director, Conf. Eng. Nicolae Crainic, PhD, took the floor at the opening.

In the speeches it was stressed the importance of the continuous training of the human resource (over 5,000 people benefiting from the 20 years of improvement within the Center), so that the local industry will benefit from competent, highly qualified specialists, to meet a changing labor market where digital skills become indispensable.

In fact, as noted by Deputy Mayor of Timisoara, Dan Diaconu, according to the World Bank report, the Banat region has in recent years been the biggest growth in the European Union, and this is largely due to the presence of specialists trained at Politehnica University Timişoara.

The work of the CEP Education Forum continued with CEP Presentation and Intervention in the Socio-Economic Environment over the 20 Years, Case Studies, Presentation of Challenges in Improving Human Capital in IT, Cisco Academy Evolution and Training Directions and certification required by industry.

In 1998, based on a Phare project, a structure was created within Politehnica University Timișoara, the Association for Continuous Training (ASFOC), whose main objective was to raise awareness among local actors (economic agents and institutions) of the importance of investments in the human resource and continuous training.

The ASFOC Center has been integrated into the structure of the Department of Permanent Education, which since 2001 has entered the structure of the Cisco Academies, and since 2003 in the structure of Microsoft Academies. Starting with 2012, the Department of Permanent Education continues to work under the name of the Center for Permanent Education (CEP) of Politehnica University Timișoara, having a much more integrated role and managing the continuous training activities within the university.
