A sectoral and modular approach to create a new European Qualification addressing Destructive Testing of Welded Joints.
There is a need for specific requirements for personnel conducting Destructive Testing (DT) that include proper specialised training and testing, as in the case of the personnel who performs Non-Destructive Testing, a sector with a broad training offer (contrary to specific VET training courses in DT, which are practically inexistent).
TRUST project will address the development of a new professional profile (European Destructive Testing Technician - EDTT), its specific curricula and Qualification standard.
TRUST target groups are young trainees involved in I-VET, trainees with working experience and professionals already working in DT field who lack the required qualification or need to upskill through C-VET. By developing a new EDTT Qualification, they will be given the opportunity to acquire the required skills and competences to work in DT of welded joints on industrial laboratories and a proper recognition of their functions, thus replying to this need, as identified to the European Committee for Standardization (CEN).
TRUST – desTRUctive teSting Technician project (2020-1-PL01-KA202-081820) aims to reply to the need for a Qualification that specifically addresses Destructive Testing of welded joints by creating a new European Destructive Testing Technician professional profile and qualification standard, targeting not only young trainees involved in Initial Vocational Education and Training (I-VET), but also professionals who already work in this area but are looking for specialised training , thus allowing them the opportunity to upskill through Continuous Vocational Education and Training (C-VET).
TRUST outcomes will include a specific training curricula, educational materials, practical exercises and assessment tools based on innovative pedagogical methods rooted on a learner-centered approach, resulting in six interconnected Intellectual Outputs.
