Establishing future-oriented training and qualification quality standards for fostering a broad uptake of sustainable energy skills in the European construction sector

TRAIN4SUSTAIN CEN Workshop Agreement – "TRAIN4SUSTAIN Competence Quality Standard"

The Train4Sustain consortium is thrilled to announce that the process concerning the preparation of the TRAIN4SUSTAIN CEN Workshop Agreement (CWA) has been officially launched by CEN, the European Committee for Standardization.

After establishing an EU-wide harmonised Competence Quality Standard (CQS), we now need to test and apply it in the EU Member States to assess its adaptability and efficiency in different environments. Therefore, at this CEN Workshop we aim to specify a common reference framework and a methodology that allows evaluating, scoring, and reporting the Level of Competence in energy efficiency and sustainability of construction professionals and workers.

CEN brings together the National Standardization Bodies of 34 European countries and provides a platform for developing European Standards and other technical documents in relation to various kinds of products, materials, services, and processes.

The kick-off meeting will be held on Wednesday, 26 January 2022, from 10:00- 13:00 CET as a web meeting. People interested in participating in the kick-off meeting can contact
