At the annual event held on 23 October 2017 in Regenstauf near Regensburg, Germany, the Berufsförderungswerk für die Beton- und Fertigteilhersteller e. V. (BBF; Association for the Advancement of Vocational Training for Concrete and Precast Producers) informed its members of latest success stories in the advancement of vocational training in the industry. BBF Managing Director Gramatiki Satslidis again pointed attendees to the online guidance for implementation published by the Bundesinstitut für Berufsbildung (BIBB; Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training) for the “Betonfertigteilbauer/in” (precast element worker) and “Werksteinhersteller/in” (engineered stone technologist) training curricula. This guidance was prepared on the basis of the revised list of job specifications; it contains information on how to implement related training programs in a shop-floor environment. The online guidance is available free of charge. It can be downloaded from the BIBB website (https://www.bibb.de) by entering the keywords “Ausbildung gestalten Betonfertigteilbauer” in the search window.
