Doppelte Qualifizierung = doppelte Chancen

Doppelt Qualifizieren und Examinieren in der Praxis

The aim of the project was to significantly facilitate the recognition of vocational qualifications in the neighbouring country or, alternatively, to obtain admission to the external examination. Based on many years of experience and taking into account the demand on the labour market, BTZ des Handwerks and Alfa-college focused on four professions:
1. Elektroniker/in für Energie- und Gebäudetechnik (DE) – monteur elektrotechnische installaties (NL) (= electrician)
2. Metallbauer/in für Konstruktionstechnik (DE) – constructiewerker (NL) (= construction mechanic)
3. Anlagenmechaniker/in (SHK) (DE) – monteur voor sanitair-, verwarmings, klimaattechniek (NL) (= system mechanic sanitary, heating and air conditioning)
4. Zerspanungsmechaniker/in (DE) – allround verspaner (NL) (= cutting machine operator)

The project has completed the comparison of training plans on the German and Dutch sides and summarised similarities and differences in four information packages. Contents for supplementary training courses accompanying vocational training were also identified. The supplementary training courses can be added to the existing curricula, so that this overall package will facilitate the recognition of vocational qualifications in both countries. In the project, the use of the results was agreed with the responsible authorities. Look here (external link) for further infomation.
