Quality Specialists Training in the Context of Technical Regulation System Formation Knowledge in the field of quality is becoming an essential condition of successfulfunctioning of any organization. Quality is the main factor forming competitiveness of products,companies and regions in modern conditions of integration into the world space and Russia'sWTO accession. However, the unbalance of existing educational services and requirements forquality and content of education on the part of labour market is characteristic of modern Russianeducation. Educational programs hardly ever satisfy actual needs of enterprises. The majorproblem is that of scarcity or, more often, lack of specialists which are capable of completing thetasks of technical quality and safety regulation of products in accordance to the requirements ofinternational agreements and obligations of the Russian Federation. A modern qualified specialist has to have a clear idea of interrelation between technicalregulations and standards, be able to find the standard or regulation necessary for their work,know the difference between national, interstate and international standards, be competent interms of correlation confirmation and estimation, tests administration and quality management aswell as accreditation, control and supervision. Understanding the fact that it is impossible toexpand into a new market and keep the old one without such specialists led to the creation of aposition “Technical Regulation Specialist” (in some organizations). The article analyses trainingquality of specialists to meet the requirements of employers. Kazan National Research Technological University offered its own problem solution tothe enterprises whose specialists graduated from the University many years ago and have a littleknowledge in this continuously varied field. The program called “Research and AcademicsCluster of Kazan National Research Technological University for 2012-2014” was accepted inthe University. The main task is to modernize the professional education system in order to meetthe challenges of Human Resourcing and innovative development of the petrochemical complexof the Tatarstan Republic. KNRTU offers various programs of advanced training formanagement and key personnel that get an idea of the wide range of quality managementaspects. Minor degree program called “The Russian System of Technical Regulation in thecontext of the Common Economic Space Formation in the Customs Union and World TradeOrganization” is of special interest. This program contains the section “Technical Regulation andthe World Trade Organization” in which students learn how to use technical regulations andstandards, and how different countries use unrated regulatory methods of international economicactivity within the World Trade Organization. Moreover, the WTO Agreement on technicalbarriers, sanitary and phytosanitary measures in trade is considered in detail. Such a program canbe useful for the enterprises which have a desire to expand into the international markets, as wellas those who are faced with increased competition in the domestic market due to the opening ofthe Russian market after Russia's WTO accession. The important role of this program lies in the fact that professors take part in it not onlyas lecturers, but also as students. Afterwards it allows training courses for engineering andhumanitarian students to be diversified and updated. Thus, the creation of technical regulation and standardization system balanced with theinternational and regional (European) ones and innovative technologies are the key factors ofRussian economy competitiveness. All this is impossible without qualified employees constantlyenhancing their knowledge.
