When looking at the profession of event technology (ET) in Europe the forms of training are inconsistent and forms of mutual recognition barely exist. It appears that more and more qualified ET specialists are required by the labour market. ET specialists are people who often find themselves working in an international environment. Guest performances, tours, major events involving several countries, require a huge variety of specifically trained specialists in the field of ET. By creating transparency in the field of relevant training this would provide a basis for facilitating inter-state recognition of those working in this field as well as supporting the international exchange of these experts. Security and safety related issues are a central, essential and important aspect of education in ET. Thus, it is important to consider standards and norms at international and national levels. Safety and security for visitors, participants, skilled workers and contributors is essential at each event, and especially at major events. For the requirements for a standardized and recognized training in ET, the project ECVAET 3 contributes for discussion and implementation in the partner countries.

The first condition for the start of an EU-wide mutual recognition of qualifications is the creation of transparency in the field of training and education. One aim in ECVAET 3 is, to identify the requirement for a master craftsman training for the ET for the German-speaking area in Europe, present it in a competency matrix and map it with safety aspects in a security matrix, which are designed according to the VQTS principle. Subsequently the design of modules towards an European master craftsman training should initiate the discussion and the processes for implementing one single European master craftsman training.

The project relies on the results of the previous projects (ECVAET and ECVAET 2) using the created products and outputs. The partner organisations involved in the proje
