The paper will be focused on the evaluation results of this experience and the redesign elements in terms of alternation between the classroom and distance training, methodologies, e-learning platform and learning evaluation. The objective is to identify a |learning model|, able to support lifelong learning and to define dynamics and process relating to facilitating learning activities of teachers and tutors.
