Marketing Text During the “Distribution Cert 2” (DC-2) project realization the training program for the electricians had been developed in Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia. The training program for the power network maintenance and repair sector, based on the Finnish experience is being successfully used in Finland for the several years.
Description During the project program has been harmonized in Baltic countries with some modification, because the Finnish experience cannot be used with 100% in the Baltic States, due to Baltic power network topology differences. In the framework of the Project the 9 pilots in Latvia, 14 pilots in Lithuania and 14 pilots in Estonia had studied in accordance with the new training program. Training process had been prepared by certified education and training institutions in each Baltic country. After successful completion of training the pilots had got the certificates showing the theoretical knowledge and practical skills acquired during the training process.
Target group The impact of the project will first be seen in an increasing co-operation between the project and the actors within its sphere of influence. The most significant impact is related to the multinational study program for network electricians and to the qualifications system developed to measure the learning results and vocational skills of network electricians. Over the years they will start to produce network electricians with multinational qualifications that are recognized in all participating countries and that are also qualitatively better than before. For these network electricians, the opportunity to cross national borders for work will gradually become an obvious option. In this way it will also become possible for enterprises in the sector to work more efficiently than before, as recruiting new employees becomes easier.
Result Completed daily and weekly teaching programm. Harmonised training process and skills examination principles in the Baltic countries.
Area of application In DC-2 project the Energy sector associations were conclude and signed a Memorandum of Understanding about training process and skills examination principles in the Baltic countries. This step is providing the possibility for power network electricians, such as other network specialists, to work in the other Baltic countries. The training program and methodology, developed in the "Distribution Cert 2" project, as well as the experience gained also will be used in the future in each Baltic country.
