- 100 ECVET points to those professions which require a one year long training → Care Operator and Socio-Assistance Assistant
- 50 ECVET points to those professions which require a shorter training → Family Assistant, Dental Assistant, Baby Sitter.
ECVET points are allocated to Units of Learning Outcomes following two main criteria:
a. TIME required to acquire the competences included in the Unit.
