Regulations in Germany
According to Vocational Training Act (BBiG), advanced training aims at those qualifications that have already been acquired in a training occupation . They should be maintained, expanded, adapted to technical developments or expanded in such a way that career advancement is possible. A distinction is made betweenthe
The skills acquired through training qualifications be detected by most tests, the competent bodies (usually chambers of trade or chambers of commerce to carry). Some advanced training courses are regulated by statutory ordinances that are valid nationwide and that are issued by the responsible federal ministries .
Professional advancement training is, for example, the courses attended by skilled workers that lead to the master craftsman's examination , courses to prepare for examinations for the specialist business qualification or courses that prepare for an examination according to the trainer aptitude regulation (AEVO).
Instructions are a special form of advanced training . For example, the Occupational Safety and Health Act requires that the insured be adequately and appropriately instructed. Triggers for instruction are, for example, hiring or transfer, changes in the area of responsibility or changes in work processes.
Colloquially, the terms advanced training and professional development are often incorrectly used as synonyms. Vocational training includes, for example, self-didactic training, retraining and in-company training measures, none of which are part of training in the sense of the BBiG.
The professional development takes place partly during working hours, partly in leisure time, e.g. B. on the weekend. The employee also participates in terms of time. Employers and employees often also share the costs. In principle, professional training can be financed
- rarely by the employer,
- mostly by the employee who is receiving further training himself,
- with public funding, e.g. B.
- through the employment agency, funding programs of the federal states or
- by the EU or
- by a combination of these.
Public funding takes place if a better individual competitive situation is to be achieved in the event of a change in personal aptitude or a changed job market . Approval of public funding does not guarantee the substantial value of the educational measure.
