Invitation to the Train-the-Trainers webinar course


REHVA (Federation of European Heating, Ventilation and Air-conditioning Associations) invite you to attend the first PROF/TRAC Train-the-Trainers (TtT) webinar course, to be held in October 2017. The participation is free, financed by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme.

The course is designed for training organizations of lifelong learning courses and will focus on continuing education in the field of nZEBs. Organizers seek trainers with interdisciplinary background, being able to cover different professional fields (i.e. engineers, architects, facility managers, project developers, etc.). More the one participants from the same training organization are welcome.

Individual professionals interested in these topics are also welcome. However, they will be asked to inform the TtT managers whether they are linked with a training organization as trainers.

During 8 online sessions, participants will be acquainted deeply with available educational materials, different investigative and educational methods and latest knowledge in nZEB design. The objective is to give a competitive advantage by providing new insights and teaching techniques. By the end of the course, the attendants will be guided towards the definition of tailored training course plans.

Training organisations will be invited to join the PROF/TRAC European Training and Qualification scheme and gain competitive advantage by updating their training portfolio offered to professionals. Certified trainers and experts will be invited to join the PROF/TRAC platform.

Participation is free but registration is compulsory. If you are interested to join, please register here to the course.
