As a part of
eu-LISA’s core activities, the Agency provides training on the technical use of
the systems in its remit, namely the Second Generation Schengen Information
System (SIS II), the Visa Information System (VIS) and Eurodac. Training is
given to operators in Member States that manage the systems, SIRENE officers
and Schengen evaluation team members. Training activities are in line with relevant
provisions foreseen in eu-LISA’s Establishing Regulation.
In the course of
2015 eu-LISA prepared and carried out a number of training sessions for system
operators. Following the entry into operations of the Eurodac Recast regulation
and the ongoing efforts of the Members States to prepare for this, special focus
was given to Eurodac recast related training. Furthermore a series of webinars
for Schengen evaluators were also delivered and for the first time special
training for SIRENE officers was rolled-out.
training related projects involving eu-LISA stakeholders as well as the
European Commission and Member States was heightened during 2015. Particular
emphasis was given to improving collaboration in this field with eu-LISA’s
fellow JHA Agencies.
eu-LISA plans to
continue its yearly mapping of Member State needs as well as providing improved
training initiatives. Special attention will be given to updating existing
training curricula and the development of common training activities with other
Agencies in the area of Justice and Home Affairs in 2016.
Currently eu-LISA is putting the final touches to a Learning Management System (LMS) platform
which, amongst others, will contain further information about eu-LISA training
activities and products.
