The project called PECCS – Pan-European Competence Certificate for Shot-firers/blast designers by EFEE (the European Federation of Explosive Engineers) has been created as a training course, according to the valid European Shot-firer Requirements.

The course includes 6 chapters from a previous project called ESSEEM and 3 additional chapters about Tunnelling, Contour blasting and Health and Safety – all on level 4-5 according to the EQF. The materials have been created and modernised by very experienced and appreciated specialists from 8 different European countries. All partners of PECCS project have collaborated to add exercises and exams to the materials, including Guidebook for teachers and Testing Environment for students – it is part of the EFEE Education System which aim is to have a EU directive for this profession.

The materials will be available for all educational entities, universities and authorities for training or assessing the shot-firer education. In order to gain access to the PECCS materials all you need to do is write an e-mail to info@shotfirer.eu and we will guide you through the process. The materials are free of charge.
