The ongoing training of industrial experts is established by the regulations issued by the CNPI (National Council of Industrial Experts) according to directives in line with other professional orders. In other words, all registered industrial experts are required to attend refresher and training courses in order to acquire the necessary training credits to carry out the profession. The verification of these credits takes place on a five-yearly basis from January 1, 2017, precisely in implementation of the latest changes to this regulation.
Icotea, as part of the training obligations to which all professional orders are subject, since October 26, 2016, has been accredited by the National Council of Industrial Experts as an institution authorized to provide courses and training credits for industrial experts. From this point of view, those who work as industrial experts, thanks to ICOTEA, can grow professionally, find new opportunities and raise the quality standards of their work.
