"The study of some public examinations such as those of the Diplomatic ones is one of those experiences that definitely mark the life of a person. That is why the choice of the academy in which to prepare them is so important, because not only the outcome depends on it, but also whether the experience is more or less pleasant and enjoyable.


In my case, I remember the first day I arrived at the CEI, when I had only a slight idea of ​​what it was to be a diplomat and many questions that needed an answer. Luckily, the CEI team answered all my questions and I decided to undertake this adventure.


Once the decision is made, you experience another of the most important moments: the first oral exposition of topics. You are doubtful and nervous, with little command of the subjects and, again, a good dose of uncertainty. However, the affability and enormous wisdom of Ambassador Perpiñá-Robert are the necessary elements to instil security and confidence in the young candidates who have decided to study at the CEI.


From then on, the candidate begins to dominate each of the opposition exams thanks to the extensive training that the CEI offers. Thus, the preparation of the test, the interview and the singing is facilitated by the collaboration of numerous diplomats and other officials of the General State Administration with great knowledge about all areas of law, economics, cooperation for the development, history and international relations.


Likewise, the CEI counts on Kathryn O'Connor and Fernand Menier for the preparation of the languages exercise, two people with great experience, professionalism and passion for their work who offer comprehensive training to achieve a broad command of English and French.


Finally, I can say that the CEI is not only a place to prepare for the exams, but a great home in which personal relationships are created and developed that remain many years later. In this sense, I have to thank the Secretariat team and, especially, Eli Rubio, for having listened to all our problems and concerns throughout these years, for having resolved so many doubts and for having been so and so patient.


Based on all this, I encourage all those who are thinking of taking an examination to join the Diplomatic Corps to choose the CEI as a guarantee of success and as an unforgettable experience."
