SENA is a very recognised institution in my country and as for the programs (courses) there is a website to enrol in them.

I just chose it. Also I took a pair of vocational and attitude exams downloaded from the internet that a teacher from the school recommended me. I did it to know what courses were more suitable for me. That’s how I chose this career.
