Title 8. Internet platform as an information centre to support the certification processes
Product Type transparency and certification
Description A multilingual internet page serves as an information platform and supports the certification process. All essential elements, such as the certification regulations, descriptions of competences, competence profiles and information material are available in the project languages.
Target group People who want to have their acquired competences certified and those involved in the certification process are the target group for this product.
The project website was merged with the certification platform. Anyone who is interested and all users can access this platform. It is a content management system, which is available in different languages. This means that the partners can directly enter information or changes in their own language. To date, the website is available in English and German. It has also been partly transferred into other languages. The website will be transferred into all partner languages. This will be done on the basis of the handbook, which is already available in all languages. The project website represents the informative part of the certification platform which can be accessed by anyone.
The certification platform shall help to manage and administer the certification processes on a European level. It is a prototype and thus a unique solution and a genuine innovation. Some internal areas are protected and require a username and a password. Potential users can register via e-mail. The platform is available in German and English. Some areas are only available in English because they are used by those who are involved in the certification.
