MetadataShow full item record
This paper reports on the development of EBDIG-WFSV design courses curriculum and to establish the ground work to ensure its compliance with the requirements of the European Credit system for Vocational Education and Training framework (ECVET). It is also expected that the curriculum would also satisfy the requirements of the Royal Institution of Naval Architects' Initial and/or Continuing Professional Development (RINA's IPD/CPD). The paper includes an investigation into the ECVET framework to ensure that the EBDIG-WFSV courses are developed in line with this system's requirements and at the same time the courses also satisfies the requirements of the Royal Institution of Naval Architects' IPD and/or CPD. In this paper the ECVET framework is described and RINA's requirements for accreditation are identified. A crossreferencing technique is used to ensure all requirements are met and EBDIG-WFSV courses will be compliant with ECVET and ready for accreditation by RINA. © 2014: The Royal Institution of Naval Architects.
