Vocational Training in Marine Renewable Energy Technologies (AquaRetII)
Aqua-RET 2 aims to facilitate the transfer of people who are working in ancillary sectors (e.g. the maritime industry, offshore oil and gas) who have skills which are highly relevant, to the emerging marine renewables sector.
Aqua-RET 2 will further adapt and develop material from the successful Aqua-RET project (2006-2008) to meet the skills and knowledge gaps identified during the project which will facilitate this transfer and will create the levels of competence needed by the marine renewables sector.
Training courses will be developed for specific user groups with assessment mechanisms which will transfer knowledge between sectors and geographically across Europe to support this fast developing sector.
