Friction Stir Welding (FSW) technologies have a worldwide diffusion in several industrial sectors (rail, shipbuilding, automotive, aeronautics).
Attending to the growth in FSW use and the evident need for metal qualified personnel in Europe, VET Providers will have to carry on fostering lifelong learning through FSW continuous training. Hence, Welding education and training for technicians, practitioners and welders must include FSW learning modules in their basic programmes. New contents and activities must also be developed, to ensure the updating of skills in the industry.
The project regards to the development of Guidelines for new professional profiles, aiming to promote a high-quality work-based learning in VET by improving the training methods applied.
