Continuing Vocational Training: All training activities planned in advanced, organized or supported with the specific goal of learning and financed at least partly by the enterprises with the aim of providing new skills or improving current skills of their persons employed are classified as continuing vocational training.
CVT Courses: CVT courses are typically clearly separated from the active work place (learning takes place in locations specially assigned for learning, a class room or training centre). They exhibit a high degree of organization (time, space and content) by a trainer or a training institution. The content is designed for a group of learners (e.g. a curriculum exists). Two distinct types of CVT courses are identified:
Internal CVT courses: Internal CVT courses are principally designed and managed by the enterprise itself.
External CVT courses: External CVT courses are principally designed and managed by organizations which are not part of the enterprise itself (e.g. 3rd party organizations). The enterprise is responsible for choosing the course, to determine timing/ volume of the course or to finance partly the cost of course.
Other forms of Continuing Vocational Training: Activities evaluated as training activities with the purpose of learning however they differ from training courses by means of time and continuity. On the job training, job-rotations and study visits, learning and quality circles, self directed learning and attendance at conferences, trade fairs, workshops and seminars (without certificate) are evaluated as other forms of CVT.
