Towards an European training market and professional qualification in Geological Disposal
The aim of the PETRUS 2 project is to enable present and future professionals on radioactive waste management in Europe, whatever their initial disciplinary background, to follow a training programme on geological disposal which would be widely recognized across Europe. In addressing the needs of the end-users, access to a combination of education (formal), continuous learning and professional development (non-formal) will be offered and developed within the project.
In this frame, the PETRUS consortium composed of academia, training centres, nuclear waste management agencies and research centres will co-operate through a suitable organisational structure for co-ordinating its activities and deliveries, which are:
- The conception of the training programmes by taking into account both training providers and end-users point of view.
- The development of the adequate training schemes and the delivery of courses integrated to these schemes.
- The development of a framework for the mutual recognition and accreditation of the training programmes.
- The settlement of a plan for assuring the update and long-term sustainability of the programmes.
