Generic Objetives: To ensure that the WRM setor workforce acquires the necessary skills and knowledge for their job development, to contribute to the development of digital contents and to involve the final users and other stakeholders into the process of eLearning contents development and delivery in order to reach transparent and portable skills certification and employment.
