Role of accreditation in this sector

In the education and training, certification of persons field of activity, the focus is on qualification – where in many cases accreditation fulfils an essential function.

In the area of employment promotion, for example, the so-called “expert bodies” require accreditation as proof of their competence. These certification bodies are responsible for approval of the measures promoted by the employment agency or job centre and their institutions.

In the area of certification of persons, too, accreditation promotes the quality of the competence taught to staff and technical experts. Certification bodies in this area qualify and test people from numerous specialist areas, such as the healthcare sector, the motor vehicle sector or the IT industry.
