Be drin first round of meetings for the final certification workshop. The first Meeting will be held in Albania from April 8th to 9th

The first meeting with Balkan partners for the final certification workshop, a project’s activity devised to strengthen the understanding of EUAV certification process and requirements in view of application submission, will take place on April 8th-9th in Tirana, Albania, at The Capital Tirana Hotel.

The certification workshop will be structured in informal work groups and will consist in two rounds of work meetings, with each meeting tailored to the specific needs of the partner organization that plans to apply for certification.

Be Drin workshop in Tirana 26th-29th of september 2016

Italian experts from the Italian Department of Civil Protection, ANPAS, CIMA, Italian Red Cross and CISOM will interact directly with each Balkan partner organization interested in submitting their application to be certified as EU Aid Volunteers Hosting Organizations, in order to assist them in reviewing previous course material and offer any needed clarifications on the application forms. The objective is to strengthen the partners’ ability to remove existing gaps, update or integrate necessary documentation and devise appropriate procedures to ensure compliance with certification requirements.

This first appointment in April will be entirely dedicated to QVEC (Qendra Vullnetare e Emergjencave Civile Albania), the Albanian partner who has requested assistance in further preparing for application submission. QVEC managers and key operatives will have the chance to discuss more in depth the various aspects of volunteer management covered during previous trainings and to perfect their understanding of certification requirements.

A second two-day work meeting is planned for late April in Kosovo* and will be dedicated to EMA (Emergency Management Agency), the Kosovar partner that has also manifested its commitment to apply for certification.

The second round of meetings will take place in the same locations in May, with the aim to finalize the partners’ preparation for certification application,
