    Abstract

    Nowadays, it is necessary to train professionals to address today's changing in the labor market and promote the competitive economy. As a result of using an interactive training tool, the sector s competitiveness as well as the staff s qualification would be improved through the promoting learning with Open Educational Resources (OER) and their access to the professional. Training the professionals will promote the competitive economy and will facilitate the mobility and professionalization of the personnel particularly in increasing sectors such as wind energy. The ICT tools are a valuable solution for the wind energy sector considering that wind farms are often located in remote areas and an ICT training tool would facilitate the staff s qualification from every place. Providing information and advices about the operational (installation and maintenance) skills will improve notably the qualification of the staff involved in the wind sector, promoting an innovative training to consolidate the sustainability of this sector specially now when in addition of new installed power a revamping of the existing wind farms is needed in many European countries. In parallel the tool being developed within this work would learn from the experience and from the best practices. Enhancing digital integration in training will improve the demands of the current market.
