In the polar agro-economic technical school of Yamal it is planned to educate to a new specialization – “a reindeer herder-mechanizer”, as the press-service of the governor of Yamal informs. First, the new specialization should be brought into the license of the educational institution; it needs to make the educational plan in conformity with the federal state educational standard. This plan will define terms of professional education. After completion of education graduates will receive the status of qualified workers and employees.
The specter of directions of professional education on this specialization, according to the federal standards, is very wide. These are: productive reindeer breeding, production, primary processing and storage of products of reindeer husbandry, manufacture, maintenance, exploitation and repair of tools and equipment for reindeer husbandry, exploitation and maintenance of motor transport.
Among professional competences of a reindeer herder-mechanizer there are the following: a skill to form a reindeer herd, to conduct its travelling and grazing, following the right technique of feeding, to prepare calving, processing of venison and others. Besides, the list of skills includes breeding and feeding of deer-herding huskies, training of dogs to techniques of “work” in the herd. Besides, a graduate should know how to drive tractors and all-terrain vehicles, to transport passengers and cargoes, to conduct emergency activities at accidents.
As we should note, it will be the first such experience for educational system of Yamal. Some reindeer herding regions of Russia already have it – educational institutions of Yakutia, Komi, Murmansk and some other regions educate students on the specialization “reindeer herder – mechanizer”.
