Title 3. European certification regulations
Product Type transparency and certification
The certification process is set down in the certification regulations, which apply to all countries. These regulations are based on the European standard for personnel certification. It is thus based on transparency, the division of assessment and consultation, and common procedures, rules, and processes. The certification regulations are currently available in all 9 project languages.
The certification regulations define the processes and single steps that are required for the certification of competences.
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 certification regulations are the basis for the whole certification because they define basic principles, as well as individual duties and responsibilities. The certification regulations are valid on a European level and are applied by all organisations, institutions, and persons involved. The CEMES certification regulations and the relevant competencies can be found in this brochure or on the internet. Thus, the certification is rendered very transparent and anyone who is interested will be able to gather all the necessary information. Potential candidates will find the requirements they have to meet, thus being be able to decide whether a preparatory course or an assessment are necessary. Human resources managers might find the detailed information about the competencies useful because thus, they know exactly what skills an applicant with an EMC possesses. From the first consultation or interview to the issuing of the certificate, the overall process is clearly structured.
