With this project called PECCS – Pan European Competency Certificate for Shot firer/blast designers, EFEE’s (European Federation of Explosive Engineers) aim is to create a course, according to the valid European Shot firer Requirements, for a standardised assessment of technical competencies for the shot firer / blast designer profession in European Union.
The Course will be based on a material with 6 chapters from a previous project and an additional chapter will be added about blasting tunnels, the materials will be worked through and modernised. During this project all partners collaborate to add exercises, exams to the materials and all this will be put together for a course which also will be available as online course in order to reach as many people as possible.
The outcomes of this project: the materials with examining questions, exercises, the course based on these materials and the online courses, will be available on the internet for free on www.shotfirer.eu. In order to maintain a good quality and appropriate educational outcome of the courses we will create a Guidebook based on the learning material for trainers and shot firers who want to learn independently online.
The project is funded by European Commission under the Erasmus+ programme.
