Professional education gives the opportunity to develop and discover talents


© 2020, Linards Andersons

When I entered Riga State Technical School, I knew that I could connect my future with the financial or business sector. After four years of studies at the Riga State Technical School, thanks to skilled and knowledgeable teachers, I can imagine myself working in the field of commercial sciences.
Riga State Technical School has given me many opportunities – I have participated in competitions, got involved in the RSTS students’ self-government unit and become its president, not forgetting to continue my hobby – folk dancing.
Every year I improve myself – I develop both practical skills and gain new knowledge. In 2020, participating in the Skills Latvia 2020 skills competition “Retail”, I won the 1st place as a sales specialist.
Currently, I am improving my knowledge in an outsourcing accounting company, where during the qualification practice I get to know the labor market, entrepreneurship in Latvia and development process of small companies.
I am glad that four years ago I chose to study at the Riga State Technical School, because professional education gives me the opportunity to develop and discover my talents, gain useful knowledge and grow in my chosen profession.
