Work package 9

The ultimate goal of the ENETRAP II project is the introduction of a European mutual recognition system for RPEs. In WP9 coordinating actions will be undertaken to establish such a system. Furthermore, the European training passport will be introduced as a tool for facilitating an efficient and transparent mutual recognition system.

Whenever possible, a collaboration will be established with the "training" Working Groups of the three EU "platforms" that were launched in 2007 (in particular, to discuss the added value of a "European training / skills Passport" and the balance between theoretical and practical training that is desired to improve both the quality and the mobility of nuclear experts in public as well as private sector): SNE-TP, ENEF and HLG.

Objectives

  • To set up the framework, the criteria and the procedure for the mutual recognition of curricula, courses and training sessions supporting the training of RPEs and RPOs.
  • To test the framework and the procedure against currently recognised curricula for RPEs
  • To introduce a European training passport as an instrument for the implementation of the mutual recognition of RP training in different countries.           
 

Description of work

  • Drawing on the reference standards developed in WP4 and the evaluations developed in WP5, WP9 establishes the framework for mutual recognition of components of the RP training sessions and develops the criteria and the procedure; experience with accreditation systems for courses and training sessions, and with similar frameworks for mutual recognition, such as European Master of Science in Nuclear Engineering, the EU MSc in Radioecology, and the EMRP will be used.
  • The framework, criteria and procedure is applied in a test phase to recognised and well-established RP curricula in different EU countries; adjustments are made as required;
  • The framework, criteria and procedure is applied to a variety of components of RPE and RPO education and training programmes in different countries.
  • The results of the test phase are documented in a report.
  • A prototype for a European Training Passport is developed as an instrument for the implementation of the mutual recognition of the training programmes throughout the EU.
  • A survey will be made of the degree of acceptance of the training passport by different stakeholders (regulators, safety organisations, employers using nuclear technologies and/or applications of ionising radiation) in several countries of the EU.
  • The result of the survey is documented in a report.              
 

Deliverables

  • WD9.1   Framework and procedure for mutual recognition of RPE qualification.
  • WD9.2   Report on the test phase of the mutual recognition procedure.
  • WD9.3   Prototype of European Training Passport and report on its acceptance by stakeholders in the EU.
