Compliance with AW standards during transport and at the CPs cannot be assured unless all those involved - such as veterinarians, drivers, CP managers and staff - understand that public awareness on this matter has increased tremendously and that their behaviour should change accordingly.
Countries should foster the competence and awareness of operators with appropriate training programmes as a means of ensuring compliance with regulation standards. Training, therefore, has a strategic role and the aim should be to develop human resources that are fully aware of the importance of management based on scientifically defined AW standards. Training, furthermore, is the most efficient means of assuring the development of both harmonised specialist competences and skills as well as harmonised interpretation of the legislation.
Traditional face-to face training has well known limits in terms of number of trainees, time and costs, so a set of eLearning tools is proposed, to overcome such barriers and allow a quick and effective spreading of knowledge and expertise.eLearning, in fact, allows beneficiaries to achieve deep knowledge and treasure time dedicated to learning: contents are delivered through a web based platform, accessible without time and/or space constraints.
eLearning solutions offer relevant advantages, such as:
Beneficiaries of the course packages are veterinarians, transport companies and Cps personnel (managers and staff), with the aim to let them:
Obviously, different perspectives are proposed according to each target group needs. That's the reason why different eLearning modules represented the main WP5 outcomes:
All modules are available in English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Greek, Russian and Arabic after their validation. In fact, an internal and external testing process will take place from January 2013 to the end of May 2013. To learn more about the testing process please read here.
The courses will be delivered through an Open Source Learning Management System: Docebo.
