To help professionals who want be up-to-date in standardisation matters, there are two courses offered through the AENOR training catalogue.

These courses address, to varying degrees, the knowledge necessary to understand the standardisation system and include short workshops on social skills.

As they are modular, both courses can be customised to combine their contents and they are also available in an in-company setting. These custom-made courses are especially recommendable for associations to offer them to their members and for companies that have several people who are involved in standardisation or who actively use technical standards.

University text books and graduation cap for training UNE

There are a plethora of positive synergies and interactions between standardisation and the university, and they have been empirically proven in many cases, such as through a connection between standardisation andR&D&I.

Standardisation can be integrated into the university context through many activities, ranging from motivational talks, to the use of standards in subjects, the integration of standardisation into subjects, master's degree courses, or even as a subject itself. Similarly, the approach varies, ranging from handling a specific standard to the strategic use of standardisation, or the use of standardisation as a tool for teaching specific skills; negotiation, communication, etc.
