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.
