Nowadays it is important that training courses are really recognised and attendees receive a certificate valid for all European countries. As a backbone of this initiative the EU supported the establishment of the European Certification and Qualification Association (ECQA). This ECQA is the result of the former European Qualification Network EQN Leonardo networking project, 2005 – 2007.

The overall objective of the project was to establish the ECQA (www.ecqa.org) which is supported by training organisations from European countries (currently organisations from 18 countries participate) developing and maintaining a set of quality criteria and common certification rules which are applied across the different European regions in the Life Long Learning scope in the IT and services, engineering, finance and manufacturing sectors.

This results in a pool of professions in which a high level of European comparability has been achieved by a Europe wide agreed syllabus and skills set, a European test questions pool and European exam (computer automated by portals) systems, and a common set of certificate levels and a common process to issue certificates.
