The world is changing before our eyes. Technology is evolving at a speed that was unthinkable for generations before us. Many occupations become obsolete leaving room for new ones and new skills in order to manage new technologies. The fear of being replaced by robots, of losing jobs is not something that we should spend our time on. The time should be spent on learning and acquiring new knowledge and new skills that even our age should not stop us. The fact is that new technologies will always be managed by humans and therefore it is necessary to design new quality training programs.
Drones are the future in various sectors. In the postal sector they offer great opportunities in the field of delivery. To operate a drone that will deliver a package in various conditions, one should gain knowledge consisting of several professions while combining knowledge with skills. The Fly VET Up! project provides such a solution: a comprehensive interdisciplinary curriculum for drone operators, occupation that can improve the traditional way of doing postal business.
People are not replaceable but technology and the way of approaching the challenges, that unstoppable and rapid technological progress puts before us, are changing. The Fly VET Up! project will contribute to overcoming such challenges by designing an educational program accessible to all.
Objectives of the project
The synthesis of the project consortium brings together:
a) Postal operators from three different countries (Croatia, Greece, Cyprus) which serve as the source for the identification of training needs as well as the project’s direct beneficiaries whose personnel will be trained.
b) Vocational training institutions: (AERONAUTICAL TECHNICAL SECONDARY SCHOOL RUDOLF PERESIN ZTŠ and AKMI ) which will offer combined expertise in the design, development of UAV operator / remote pilot occupational profile as well as the design and implementation of the professional training program.
c) UAV expert (DRONIT LTD) is a project technological partner being the expert for the development of the flight simulator, the design, development and the overall deployment of the UAV system and UAV’s pilot implementation.
It is envisaged that, by the end of the project, 150 people in the participating countries will be trained.
