What is CCET?


The Centre for Continuous Electoral Training (CCET) by the Central Electoral Commission (CEC) of the Republic of Moldova is a public institution subordinated to CEC, established in line with art. 27 of the Electoral Code.

The good organization and development of elections by complying with the legal provisions, depends, to a great extent, on the level of professional education of the persons engaged in the electoral process. Before CCET was created, the process of electoral officials’ training had been held fragmentarily, had had an occasional and unsystematic character. There was no certification mechanism of the electoral officials either, nor to assess their professional abilities. Through its activity, the Centre for Continuous Electoral Training (CCET) shall fill in these gaps contributing in such a way to the increase of the number of persons who have professional experience in the field of elections and to a more qualitative organization of the election process.
