Education and Training Programmes
Synergy of all project partners indicates the high quality training programmes. The transfer of available knowledge, best practice and the training content from Austria complemented with Slovak and Czech know-how and academic resources created professional basis for 5 new training programmes which were developed within this project for the following targeted professionals:
- Architects and Planners,
- Civil Engineer – Site Manager,
- Construction Site Supervisor,
- Assessors of the Achieved Energy Efficiency of the Buildings,
- Sustainability/Energy advisor.
The registration options for the training sessions were several:
- via the registration form, which was sent to each participant by email,
- on the webpage vzdelavanie.sksi.sk.
- on the website sksi.sk.
The rapid development of knowledge in different areas of life places emphasis on continuous education. Organized learning is time-consuming and difficult to implement so that the term, scope and form of teaching suit every participant. For this reason, great emphasis is placed on self-education and self-study. New learning opportunities go hand in hand with the development of new information technologies, including the Internet. The Internet is matched in textbooks, books or radio and television in different directions. Teaching materials, educational materials or the verification of acquired knowledge for different types of education are very often processed as webpages. By using them, the user selects what information they choose and which resources they will use when pumping materials for study.
Self-study in the spirit of the new principles of modern education must be approached as a process of complex character, aiming at the free and harmonious development of man. However, this whole process can only be realized if there is one’s own activity, one’s own efforts to achieve a higher degree of improvement, thus wanting and developing as a personality. The role of practicing and consolidating acquired knowledge through exercises or training tests plays a big role in this. All these steps should lead to the ability to pass the final test of the acquired knowledge through a final test. This set of activities with the use of technologies can be characterized as the most modern way of Internet-based multimedia education. It offers a wide range of possibilities, creativity and knowledge transfer in the most progressive form.
We would like to draw your attention to the fact that this is a hybrid form of education which was made up of three parts:
- participation (in person or in the form of videoprojection) on program lectures ending with a certificate,
- self-study through the e-learning system, which you can find on a separate portal completed by a certificate,
- final exam at the SKSI branch completed by the certificate.
The ingREeS project brought qualitative change to the system of lifelong learning, in the construction sector, to increase efficiency and participation in educational activities. This project was coordinated by professional organizations and associations bringing together target groups with the vision of building a system of further education for construction professionals at secondary and higher management level, whose graduates gained skills and knowledge to meet European standards, expectations and requirements of today’s Europe. Participants in the ingREeS training and training programs are better prepared for the changes brought about by the creation of future projects as well as the realization of buildings and so become more qualified experts in the field of and use of renewable energy sources in buildings.
