Based on preliminary data of the companies that participated in the training, up to now as much as 12,000 cash handlers have attended in-house training related to the euro.

According to the Bank of Lithuania, the target group was constituted of small businesses covering rural areas, retail companies and post offices that cover the major part of Lithuania, and cash handlers of financial institutions who will have the greatest workload in the first days after the euro adoption. Companies delegated their representatives who were trained and afterwards transferred their knowledge to colleagues.

In spring and autumn the Bank of Lithuania organised a total of 77 seminars informing about security measures of the euro banknotes and how to distinguish real and counterfeit banknotes. The participants were introduced to banknotes and coins of every nominal value.
