The courses of the Intangible Cultural Heritage Center of Israel are aimed at: the safeguard, transmission and continuity of Israel's cultural heritage. Classes consist of 3 modules and one exam. Between the modules, there are studies and evaluations online. The training modules take the form of three seminars which take place during the school holidays. Students have the opportunity to finish their studies in 1, 2 or 3 years, depending on their schedule. 

Courses do not require a prior degree. There is a basic test to be done before registration and there is a personalized follow-up during the training for each student. Training booklets and online courses will be available in French, English and Hebrew depending on the students' native language.

After graduation, students will be supported in their job search or in the creation of their enterprise, including through the development network of the association and its partners and will benefit from individual monitoring until getting a job.

The courses may be subsidized by the Israeli Ministry of Immigration (Misrad Haklita), which subsidizes 75% of the training costs of new Olims, until 7,000 euros per person. Or by other institutions that subsidize courses.

The training is vocational and practical, focusing on preparing the student for work in Israel. Career guidance and professional development sessions are given throughout the course.
