In particular, the test trainings conducted in partner countries and their results were evaluated within the framework of the intellectual output 3, which included pilot trainings and was the focus of the meeting. During the pilot trainings, the joint competency map and digital training materials prepared within the framework of the project were tested, and the aforementioned materials will be revised within the framework of the feedback received.
