C1- ADR DRIVER TRAINER AND EXPERT TRAINING ACTIVITY OF OUR ADR PROJECT UNDER THE ERASMUS + PROGRAM OF THE EU WAS HELD THROUGH 17-21 JUNE 2019 IN ANKARA
The Project, titled ‘E-learning and Web Applications for ADR Driver Training and numbered 2017-1-TR01-KA202-45935, with the leadership of Pamukkale University, and our Federation being the Project partner, was started to be implemented as of December 1, 2017.
As being the partners of the Project, Training 2000 psc and CNA Associazione Provinciale di Pesaro e Urbino from Italy and COSGROUP (Mag Prenner & Partner GmbH) from Austria, and as a participating party SUPSI (the University of Applied Sciences of Southern Switzerland) from Switzerland, have been going on with the Project studies in line with the Project’s schedule and objectives.
The aim of the Project is to enrich the qualification certificate (SRC 5) training that the drivers carrying dangerous goods are required to obtain according to ADR legislation with the e-learning materials, thus facilitating the access of the drivers to the training and certificate.
Within the scope of this project, it is aimed to support the drivers (ADR drivers) who conduct dangerous goods transportation, with the e-learning system in order to ensure their vocational development. Within the framework, the vocational qualification map of ADR drivers has been prepared, e-materials have been developed to provide the qualifications, and the training methodology has been determined. In the last three months, the first trial training with ADR drivers, followed by training with ADR driver trainers and the arrangements made within the framework of the feedback of these groups, and the last trial training with ADR drivers were conducted. All three pilot applications received very positive feedback and it is thought that the prepared e-materials will contribute to the drivers and trainers.
Finally, through 17-21 June 2019, a 5-day training activity was held in our Federation in Ankara, for ADR driver trainers and experts of the Project with the participation of academicians from Pamukkale University and ADR driver trainers and experts from our partner institutions in Italy, Austria and Spain. With this activity, which included field experts and trainers from our Federation and other relevant organizations, within the framework of the feedback obtained as a result of pilot implementations and opinions and recommendations, the vocational map, training methodology and e-materials were finalized and the importance of the sustainability of the Project was discussed.
