Smart Metering and home Automation technologies Re – Training for ElectriciansBack To Map
The adoption of energy efficiency measures for buildings created a strong demand for digital and green skills for smart metering and home automation technologies. Electricians, apart from technical proficiency, require a combination of digital and environmental skills to respond to the installation, maintenance, and programming of smart metering and energy efficiency home automation systems. SMARTEL aimed to tackle this challenge.

SMARTEL aimed to modernise VET for electricians by: strengthening key competences in VET curricula, developing open and innovative education, training and youth work, embedded in the digital area, as well as the enhancing of access to training for all through C-VET.
Impact on the labour market and the EU: The labour market relevance of VET for electricians was enhanced, smart metering and home automation skill needs were addressed. Mutual recognition of the developed learning outcomes across the EU was facilitaded
Impact on participants and target groups: Modern training delivery methods and open access innovative pedagogical resources were introduced, enabling learners to acquire and self-assess relevant skills
Long term impact involves the uptake of project materials and open educational resources from relevant VET providers across the EU, participation of a growing number of initial and continuous VET learners in courses based on project outputs, expansion of the strategic partnership towards a network of collaborating VET and sector stakeholders, including electrical enterprises, in-house training centres, and large VET providers, and further maturing and development of national and European VET policies targeted to the construction sector influenced by SMARTEL recommendations paper.
