  As one of the core parts of ICARE,the objectives of the vocational training are:

  Ø to provide intensive and specialized training to satisfy the specific needs of professionals from the renewable energy sector;

  Ø to help both the domestic and international companies to adapt to the new trends in the current ever-changing and complex market related to new energies;

  Ø to promote the exchanges and co-operations of new technologies and equipments between EU and China in the renewable energy field;

  2. Charateristics

  ü Selected european vocational training experts and project experiences

  ü Intensive and Specialized training courses customized to the specific needs of the trainees

  ü Establish Chinese training teams familiar with European training methods

  3.Working flow chart

  Step 1 : Survey for chinese training markets and target company needs.

  Step 2 : Selecting european vocational training experts and experienced training programmes.

  Step 3 : Implementation of the training programmes.

  After surveying for the chinese training markets and target company needs, the following tracks are proposed :
