National institute of wood (Romania).
BACKGROUND AND MOTIVATION
The return to natural materials in construction, as well as awareness that the use of sustainable raw materials can build energy-efficient buildings, requiring the clients increasingly choose wood.
Energy efficiency is important in all scopes of life, especially in the construction industry. Energy efficiency principles applied in all the building stages: from planning, material selection till building construction and insulation.
Using wood as a building material creates a natural, renewable raw material product with higher added value. Sustainable construction improves energy efficiency while reducing CO2 emissions.
Summary The main objective of the EWCM-OT project was to develop eLearning material for wood construction managers and to programme it into a useful online course. After the project realization this training course is offered in each project organizations with the goal to improve the qualifications of wood construction specialists and to obtain a European recognized training certificate.
Description Training course for professionals of wooden building construction is a continuing education program that makes it possible to improve the knowledge and skills. The learning process is organized in distance education, as all study materials are available in the e-environment. Course address now is: http://skolas.lu.lv.ewcm.
