  • Members of Spain's recycling association will obtain significant discounts on standards and training courses.
  • AENOR and FER are interested in promoting training as a lever that adds value and allows us to innovate in defining and resolving new competitiveness gaps.

10 September 2019. The Federación Española de la Recuperación y el Reciclaje [Spanish Federation of Recovery and Recycling] (FER) and AENOR have signed a collaboration agreement whereby members of the association for Spain's recycling sector will benefit from significant discounts on AENOR services and on purchasing standards and both open and online training courses. They will also be able to access special conditions for certifications.

The event, which took place at the FER headquarters, was attended by Alicia García-Franco, Managing Director of FER, and Susana Lozano, Director of Training at AENOR. The representatives of both organisations explained what the collaboration agreement involves and gave details on the discount for the "AULAENOR-FER 2019" training plan.

Susana Lozano explained that "at AENOR, we look for training solutions that respond to the needs of FER members and therefore offer more than 160 courses in a wide range of areas such as Risk Management, Administrative and Legal Management, Quality Management, Environmental Management, Social Responsibility, Energy Management, Circular Economy, R&D+I and Workplace Health and Safety, which can be taken in person or online".

While Ms García-Franco revealed that "our members will benefit from a 20% discount on training plan courses thanks to this agreement". "This helps us respond to the specific needs of an industry that increasingly demands greater specialisation and where companies can become more competitive by training their human resources".
