Romania 2017

ABA partners and the Vet-Safety project team combined their skills at the recent event hosted by Transilvania University of Brasov. Experienced ABA skills verifiers and mentors supported the training & assessment of ground-based chainsaw (ECC) operators and instructors. Consolidation of previous skills & refining of techniques used in practice included assessment of theoretical knowledge during the workshop sessions.

In addition, further work supported the continuous development of the Erasmus + Vet-Safety project on work at height safety which includes the use of chainsaws. The ECC standards for work at heights have made great progress with a new safety level developed and due for release at the next joint ABA/Vet-Safety event to be held in Czech Republic during June 2017.

Project: The Game Changer

Jan 21, 2017Posted by ABA Admin

 
The Game Changer

ABA members and partners are currently involved in the development of a new Erasmus + funded project ‘The Game Changer’. The main aim is to provide support for people in a transition situation through skills development and accreditation.

Transforming trends grow both globally and at European level. Change affects everyone; it can be disruptive and difficult for individuals to transition through, particularly if a change crosses international borders, cultures and languages. ABA looks forward to supporting the partnership in the development of new educational platforms and skills testing in support of our mission to reduce or remove potential barriers to employment and mobility of skilled individuals.
