This paper outlines an ongoing research project on training, education and sharing of experiences among mobile people, also referred to as nomads. The importance for professionals to continuously learn is widely recognized. Organizations in the new economy are dependent on organizational knowledge and competence. Mobile workers need alternative educational and knowledge development opportunities that are not restrained by time and space. The goal is providing competence development for nomads using third generation cellular networks — 3G, which combines high-speed mobile access with Internet Protocol (IP) based services. This allows mobile high quality multimedia. We present a preliminary study of the competence development situation of nomads. We outline two use cases of possible competence development activities suited for the mobile worker and the 3G platform.
