Does in-service training affect self-employed earnings? the Colombian case (Inglês)

This paper evaluates the effectiveness of Colombia's Servicio Nacional de Aprendizaje (SENA), one of the world's largest national job-training systems, for raising the earnings of self-employed workers, who constitute as much as 30 percent of Colombia's labor force. The study also tests the sensitivity of previous measurements of the SENA effect to the screening hypothesis. The findings show that the earnings differential due to SENA is positive and significant for the self-employed, but that it is only about three-fifths of the differential received by SENA-trained workers in the salaried sectors, indicating that screening plays a part in those sectors. The paper also finds that SENA substitutes for schooling among the self-employed.
