ARISE Webinar-May 18, 2022: Using digitalisation to overcome vocational exclusions for training


The ARISE project are holding an ARISE webinar on May 18th, 2022-11.00-12.30 (CET)


Title: Using digitalisation to overcome vocational exclusions for training.


This webinar will present BIMcert and ARISE toolkits which provides an agile work/learning marketplace where speed and agility are critical and where the workforce needs to be provided with the tools to do their job in a continuous cycle of learning commensurate with the demands of their daily workload.

A BIM qualified building workforce is required across the UK and Europe to meet the energy challenges of construction.

The toolkits ensure that blue-collar workers and some middle and senior-level professionals across the building value chain have the required BIM, interconnect IT and technological skills, as well as practice.
