The completion of the pioneering upskilling program in the field of electromobility in Western Macedonia (03/11/2023), orchestrated by the Electromobility Academy of INNORA and KEDIVIM of the University of Western Macedonia, signifies a substantial step toward the enhancement of professional skills in a sector that is central to the green and digital transition.
The first certificates acknowledging expertise in electromobility were conferred by the University of Western Macedonia, thus strengthening the professional outlook for technicians of high-voltage vehicles. This certification aligns with the national legal framework, which defines the necessary qualifications for specialists in the repair and maintenance of electric and hybrid vehicles.
Within the framework of the 62-hour program, 70 participants were educated at KEDIVIM facilities in Kozani and Florina, gaining extensive theoretical and practical knowledge. This initiative is integrated into the wider strategy of DYPA for the promotion of the labor market, social cohesion, and equipping the workforce to meet the new challenges of the green energy wave and the digital age.
The local market has highlighted the need for skills in the field of electromobility, in line with the findings of the research conducted within the scope of the SEED project.
