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.

​There are a plethora of positive synergies and interactions between standardisation and the university sector which have been empirically proven in many cases, such as through a connection between standardisation and R+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.

Public Administration employees for training UNE
Public Administration

Standardisation is an activity regulated by the administration which, in turn, frequently uses standardisation and the quality infrastructure. It participates with more than 1,000 representatives in technical standardisation committees. The Administration usually uses standards in legislation, as examples of more than 6,000 standards are cited in Spanish legislation, and in purchasing documents.

Improving the knowledge and use of standardisation by the administration is also an objective of the Joint Initiative for Standardisation and its signatories, which is why UNE offers a practical workshop, which can be customised and delivered in any location. Face-to-face and online courses that focused on the law and other public acquirement were carried out.

Norma and the Mystery of the lost train

Based on a suggestion made at the Univerisity Education on Standardisation UNE Forum (EUE), the Spanish Association for Standardization (UNE) and the International University of La Rioja (UNIR) have developed a free escape room game.

The character must follow the clues and solve the puzzles until a missing metro carriage is found. On advancing, we realise how much standards are present in our lives.

International Congress on Standardisation, Standards and University Quality (CINECU)

The International Congress on Standardisation, Standards and University Quality (CINECU) is held on an annual basis, and its purpose is to promote the relationship between standardisation and university education.

CINECU is a place where we can see how standards and standardisation are a tool for developing essential university activities. The congress is usually attended by university lecturers from Latin America and Spain, who discuss in detail the various aspects involved in standardisation at universities and in education.
