The training of metalworking professionals
Development of the industry is impossible without qualified specialists. One of the main tasks of the MASOC is to promote the supply of adequate and qualified specialists to the industry. The cooperation with all major professional and higher education institutions and the Ministry of Education is carried out as well as activities to attract youth to learning and studying the engineering and industry relevant professions. All industry related professional standards are reconciled with the Association.
Additionally, the Association promotes the development of continuous training and lifelong learning in the sector. Since 2011, the EU co-financed project “The training of metalworking professionals” project is being implemented that enables companies to ensure skill development of the existing staff in training programs organised in partnership.
