Presentación del curso

ILO, through the Sectoral Policies Department (SECTOR), promotes decent work by addressing social and labour issues in specific economic sectors, both at international and national levels. In 1994, SECTOR developed the Portworker Development Programme (PDP), a package for the training of portworkers and their supervisors on safe working conditions and procedures, mainly covering containers operations. It comprises of 30 training units (offering around 1000 hours of training) and supportive materials properly tested and validated, that are based on best international practice. This PDP materials should be delivered by specially trained instructors. SECTOR also developed a ILO PDP Chief Instructors' Manual with the purpose of train these PDP instructors. In 2018, the ILO developed additional PDP Units covering the Transport, Handling and Storage of Bulk Cargoes and Bulk Terminals (covering iron ore, coal, bulk fertilizer, grain, bauxite and alumina). The Units are collectively known as PDP 2 Units. The ILO PDP Chief Instructors' Manual has also been subsequently revised to provide the pedagogical and professional knowledge to instructors teaching these PDP 2 Units.. The PDP 2 and the revised Chief Instructors' Manual incorporates a more user-friendly electronic format and layout based on recent IT advancement that provides additional advantages to PDP users / PDP instructors. This Training of Trainers (TOT) Course on PDP 2 has been designed in a way that it will not only meet the requirements of new PDP users, but also benefit existing PDP licensees. It is therefore highly recommended that existing PDP licensees participate in this Course with at least one of their PDP Instructors, who will then be able to update their fellow PDP instructors and effectively introduce the new PDP 2 materials in their respective organizations. The TOT Course on PDP 2 will enable instructors to deliver port-related training using the new PDP 2 materials. New or potential PDP licensees will be able to train suitable candidates as PDP Instructors. This TOT Course in PDP 2 aims therefore at familiarizing participants in PDP 2 Units and qualifying participants as ILO PDP Instructors. Successful participants in the TOT Course are deemed qualified to teach PDP Units and overtime, may be qualified by the appropriate National / Organization / Institutional Authority to become Chief Instructor to design and develop further PDP Units and to conduct the TOT Course. The International Training Centre of the International Labour Organization and SECTOR has decided that the TOT Course be held through appropriate online learning platform as there remains a pressing need for the continuous education of port workers for the enhancement of their professional knowledge, skill and attitude.
