NEWCOM Trainings & Database of Competences

NEWCOM trainings address actual deficiencies in the construction of nearly zero-energy buildings (nZEBs) and in the renovation of the existing building stock to have a very high energy standard.

NEWCOM trainings are developed as modules to enable the possibility to be added to already existing courses. The training schemes focused on three trades, important for nZEBs and according to the actual needs of the partner countries:  

  • The correct execution of flat roofs - gaining competences for “lifelong service approach” such as correct planning and installing of green roofs and renewable energy systems on the roof, avoiding humidity in the structure of the roof, implementation of energy efficiency measures on the roof as well as further nZEB features.
  • Ventilation installations - gaining competences regarding correct planning and installing of ventilation systems with heat recovery, noise protection and controlled air flow distribution as well as smart demand controlled systems.
  • Quality assurance in the planning, construction and operation phase of nZEBs - gaining competences regarding cross-craft interface management, ensuring indoor air quality, quality of thermal building envelop and the energy system, optimization of the building regarding reduction of energy demand and ecology, evaluation of cost-optimal measures considering the life cycle of the building.

NEWCOM shows up how qualifications can be described comparable and provides implementation concepts for the developed NEWCOM traninigs mentioned above.  Moreover NEWCOM creates a basis for the mutual recognition of the training schemes by the developed database of competences.

The development of training schemes is supported by a moodle platform available on www.newcomtraining.eu. Interested trainers or training providers can obtain log-in details by sending a request to: ronald.setznagel(at)17und4.at
