A certification process means to formally validate knowledge, know-how and/or competences acquired by an individual, following a standard assessment procedure. In other words, the holder of a certificate can prove that his/her competence has been tested and that he/she is able to perform what is stated on the certificate.

This is important for the individual because:

  • The competences become visible and understandable
  • It facilitates finding a job
  • It is objective evidence of experience

But it is equally important for the employer because

  • He can be sure he hires competent staff
  • He has evidence of the competence of his employees
  • This covers their liability

Of course a certificate only has value if it is mutually recognised and if the quality of the certification process is guaranteed. These are the points where ETTEC makes the difference!
