Project objectives

Measures supporting employers and SMEs

National expert teams involved in the project drafted the initial proposal for financial and regulatory supporting measures to be established to facilitate and motivate middle and senior level building professionals to participate in training courses and employers, including SMEs and microenterprises (delivering substantial part of works and services related to buildings) to invest in skills and knowledge of their employees. Proposed measures were also implemented with the aim to ensure the financial sustainability of life-long learning of middle and senior level construction professionals in Slovakia and Czech Republic in a long term perspective. From January 1, 2018, the Slovak Chamber of Civil Engineers keeps records of training sessions, seminars, conferences and other educational events belonging to lifelong learning within which the credit system was set up.
