Marketing Text Le projet a pour objectif de développer des nouvelles ressources et de nouveaux modules de formation pour améliorer les compétences en matière environnementale des ouvriers du bâtiment sur la maintenance et la réhabilitation. Le principal résultat sera un ensemble d’unités de formation (UST) à intégrer aux formations professionnelles des charpentiers, des peintres, des maçons, des techniciens du bâtiment et des installateurs de panneaux photovoltaïque, et une unité transversale sur les concepts de base de la construction durable et des bâtiments zéro énergie. Le second objectif est l’amélioration de l’information donnée aux clients, à travers le développement d’un guide d’aide aux décisions. L’utilisation du cadre méthodologique du catalogue national de qualification de chaque pays participant, et des principes du système européen de crédits pour la formation professionnelle, pendant le développement des UST, permettra leur intégration ultérieure dans ces systèmes pédagogiques.
Nowadays, the training references that are part of the national catalogues of qualifications do not integrate Units of Short-term Training (UST) concerning sustainability issues. Although the construction industry has adopted several new technical improvements enabling companies to build more sustainable buildings, the training offer is still limited and the European cooperation is relatively weak. The main goal of the project is to develop training resources and modules to improve the skills on sustainability issues of workers of buildings maintenance and refurbishment.
The FORMAR project will contribute to the development of national and sectorial qualifications by:
- Making the connection between the area of sustainability, the construction sector and pedagogical concerns related to the need of appropriate qualified professionals;
- Providing an opportunity for the development of the training itineraries more consistent, allowing the adaptation of existing skills to the present job market, increasing the employability and the labour mobility.
The FORMAR project here described will produce benefits with added value at European level, as well as at national and local level, as it is in line with the goals and priorities of the European Union, as established within the directives aforementioned, and will contribute to achieve them.
The European cooperation that is established in the context of FORMAR project will allow the exchange of experiences between three different networks of stakeholders (national advisory boards), with very similar problems and different local conditions and constraints. The learning experience obtained by the project core partners, associated partners and other stakeholders that will have the opportunity to participate in the different project activities will allow more consistent and relevant Units of Short-term Training, which can be used in and adapted to the specific conditions of other European countries.

Units of Short-term Training (UST) are learning units, capable of autonomous certification and integration in one or more training references, listed in the National Catalogue of Qualifications, allowing the acquisition of certified skills.
The project includes a group of parallel work packages that aim to develop 25-hours UST on sustainability issues oriented to workers of buildings maintenance and refurbishment: carpenters, painters, masons, building technicians, installers of solar panels, and one UST with transversal contents.
All these work packages include the following list of activities concerning the respective profession:
Analysis of needs and existing training materials;
Identification of best practices and constraints;
Development of training modules: unit program and session plans;
Development of the training resources: training contents, practical exercises, and trainer’s manuals;
Development of a client’s guide to support its purchasing decisions;
Translation from English to three languages: Portuguese, Spanish and French.
The UST with transversal contents will contain modules concerning basic concepts on sustainable construction and “nearly zero energy buildings”. The other UST will contain modules concerning basic concepts and relevant environmental aspects of the relevant building products for each profession, considering their types and classification, product’s life cycle, labelling and standards, best practices and recommendations for their purchasing, installation, use and end of life. All UST will consider the possibility of conducting field visits and invitations to external entities for dissemination of sustainable building products.
At the end of the training the trainees should be able to choose more sustainable products, especially through the purchase of products that contribute to improved energy performance of buildings and improved indoor air quality. In addition, the trainees will also be able to use a set of best practices for a more sustainable application, use and end of life of these products. In this way, it will be possible to meet the goals of improving the skills of the professionals, and contribute to implement a more sustainable maintenance and refurbishment of buildings.
The development of a client’s guide to support its purchasing decisions, to be disseminated in paper and electronic format, will allow an adequate choice of products and solutions, as well as an adequate selection of qualified professionals with additional skills on sustainable construction.
All UST will be evaluated and tested by several stakeholders of the building construction, maintenance and refurbishment sector. The results of the evaluation and testing will then be used to improve the UST.
