Purpose and goal

The project has expanded course concept Skärteknisk Utbildning with 10 training modules adapted to the professional education. Flexible course design through modular structure and two skill levels have been created. The project has been led by a steering group with Scania as chairman. The education has been developed by 5 working groups led by the academy and institute. Pilot courses with evaluations have been conducted. A future module divided concept for continuous education and training with 22 training modules have been formulated. The program gives university credits.

Expected results and effects

Flexible course structure has been implemented as well as the grouping level of knowledge. Level 1 for those who use the technology (operators) while Level 2 is designed for those who develop technology (production engineers). Course modules are possible to use for validation of knowledge in the SME company. A future modular concept proposals divided by 22 training modules have been formulated. This gives the industry the opportunity to send participants on a training program or individual training modules. The program gives university credit.

Planned approach and implementation

The project has been led by a steering group. Scania CV has been the main applicant for the project and also chairman of the steering group. The development of the training material has been made by universities and institutes through five working groups. Chalmers has been the project manager.
