Summary of the project In Vojvodina province as well as in Banat region there is no institution that provides employed welders with relevant education and certificates. So far, only 2 Serbian companies obtained ISO EN 3834 . Every company which submits application to obtain this standard has to fulfill number of conditions. One of them is that it employs at least one certificated welder. Activities which will be undertaken by the project are aiming to increase the number of educated and certificated welders as well as to increase the number of internationally competitive enterprises. As a final result their final products will be more competitive than today. The welding laboratory equipment is necessary for practical education, so 2 present laboratories at TCAS will be adjusted in order to dispatch new equipment. The project intents to interfere on unemployed population by training and certification in an area where is present a real gap on labor market.
Main goal of the project

To contribute to the increase of employment in Banat by enhancement of the competitiveness of manufacturing enterprises in Banat region.


Specific objectives To increase competitiveness of BANAT manufacturing enterprises by certification of welders
