Explanation of the results

Pool open This means that there is a shortage – that is, the pool is open because under 5% of the available workers hold a competency certificate for the concerned region and trade/occupation. Only employers guaranteeing 150 hours of work to a person over three months may reserve a place when the pool is open.

Pool at under 10% The pool is currently closed. This information is shared so that interested people may prepare for a future opening of the pool.

Pool at 30% The pool is currently closed. However, an access measure for women is offered when the pool is at 30% or under. Under this measure, a woman may enter the industry if an employer guarantees her 150 hours of work over three months.
