Counselling, Training and Certification Services as part of the Project titled “Computing Power Goes Green” with MIS code 5129748

The Technical Chamber of Greece (TEE-TCG), in the context of the Interregional Cross-Border Cooperation Program «Interreg V-B Balkan-Mediterranean 2014-2020», has undertaken, as the Contracting Authority, the implementation of “Counselling, Training and Certification Services” withing the framework of the Project titled “Computing Power Goes Green” with MIS code 5129748. The Project is co- funded by the European Union (European Regional Development Fund - ERDF) and national resources (Public Investments Program – PIP).

Subject of the Project

Subject of the Project is the implementation of Counselling, Training and Certification services  for 1.300 beneficiaries from Greece, Cyprus, Bulgaria, Albania and the Republic of North Macedonia, for the acquisition of new skills, knowledge and competences that will substantially improve and promote innovative technologies for increasing the effectiveness of the environmental protection and the efficient use of resources, as well as for supporting modern corporations in adopting and implementing new, environmentally-friendly methods and practices .

Purpose of the training programs

The training programs aim to enable the beneficiaries in acquiring additional skills and knowledge in the field of innovative technologies towards the improvement of the environmental protection and the efficient use of resources. The educational fields of the training programs are also relevant to the sectors of waste management, soil protection and air pollution reduction, while at the same time they support the beneficiaries in managing and make good use of their professional qualifications. Participation in the Certification Exams is in compliance with ISO 17024 protocol, which grants professional rights on European and International level and will positively contribute to boosting employment

Beneficiaries of the Project

The beneficiaries of the Project are professionals, engineers, technicians and anyone interested in participating in this Program. Within the context of the Project, and in more detail, one (1) group counselling session, lasting 45 minutes, as well as the two (2) following training programs will be implemented:

  • IT Infrastructure and Systems and Environmental Sustainability
  • Modern, Near Zero-Energy Professional Spaces

Every beneficiary is eligible to participate in only one (1) of the abovementioned training programs. The training programs are implemented with regard to adult training methods and protocols. Each of the 2 training programs has a duration of 40 hours and leads to relevant skills certification.

Note: The maximum allowed limit of non-attendance hours of the implemented programs is set to 10% (or 20%) of the total training hours

Any absences exceeding the permissible limits of absences, as specified in the implementation terms of the Call for Expression of Interest, result in expulsion of the right to participate in the Certification Exams, while no certificate of attendance will be granted to those trainees.

The Project’s implementation will cover the whole of the intervention area, namely Greece, Cyprus, Bulgaria, Albania and the Republic of North Macedonia.

Anyone interested may apply and submit documentation from 17/03/2023 until all offered positions are filled according to the Call for Expression of Interest.

In the context of this Project, two (2) training programs will be implemented which were designed based on the needs of the labor market, taking into account the current situation and trends at national and European level.

Each one of the two programs will have a duration of 40 hours (theoretical training), will take place outside participants working hours and will lead to a certification.

Specifically, the programs that will be implemented are:

  • IT Infrastructures and Systems and Environmental Sustainability
  • Modern, Near Zero-Energy Professional Spaces

Each beneficiary can attend to one (1) training program. Upon completion of the training program, each beneficiary may participate in the certification exams.

The thematic sections, subsections and duration in hours of the training programs are described as follows:
