European Consortium for Accreditation (ECA) is holding a Conference on the Training of Quality Assurance (QA) Panel Members in Madrid, Spain, from 14 to 15 June 2012.

This conference will disseminate the results of the E-TRAIN project, which has developed a "train the trainers workshop" for agencies and a knowledge base for experts and QA staff. It is aimed at quality assurance experts, agencies and policy makers, to share procedures and good practice in trainings. For more information, visit the ECA website.
The number of experts participating in QA procedures in other countries than their own is increasing. ECA contributes to this positive development by organising trainings for these experts and setting up a pool of European experts. The E-TRAIN project has started these initiatives. In addition, a train the trainers workshop for agencies and a knowledge base for experts and QA staff have been developed. It is now time to disseminate these results to a wider audience.
Are you an expert or do you want to become an expert in QA procedures in other countries? Are you from an agency interested in good practices in trainings or in training and sharing European experts? Or are you a QA policy maker from an institution, association or government organisation? In all these cases this conference will probably be useful for you and you are cordially invited to participate. You can find the draft programme, logistical information and the registration facility in the menu at the left of this page.
