Yes. Under Dutch tax law, you can deduct the training costs you personally made (e.g. the admission fee). Essentially, you do not pay income tax on your admission fee. The same applies to your tuition fee, should you pay for that yourself. 

Should you pay off your tuition fee in installments, please note that you may deduct the training costs in the fiscal year(s) that you actually paid for it ("U mag uw studiekosten aftrekken in het jaar dat u ze hebt betaald").

Please check the site of the Dutch Tax Authorities (Belastingdienst) for more information.

Kindly note that tax break rules are changing as of January 2022. See here for more information: Upcoming Changes in Dutch Tax System
