European Certification and Qualification Association
The ECQA GmbH was founded 2015, out of an initiative and several European projects. The ECQA GmbH is taking over the work of the ECQA association and by thus working with international experts to certify job roles worldwide and to network with experts on the needs of markets and companies. Additionally the ECQA is using their experts on Vocational Education Training to support Training organisations and Project groups that often seek help in the design of their trainings to stick to EQF/NQF. Additionally, ECQA GmbH is already a certification provider of other associations and is managing their certifications (E.g. iNTACS, ISTQB).
