The next stage of planning envisages, among other things, three innovative interventions:
1the digitization of the Candidate Guide Exam Review that will have a unique “barcode” number and will prevent falsifications,
2the digital planning of the examination of the candidate without the need to attend the competent services or the mediation of third parties,
