In order to support you with the certification procedure according to our quality standards, we have developed an assessment guide for the certification of continuing education courses, which contains all relevant quality standards in form of questions and definitions of the benchmarks.

All our quality criteria consider the distinctive features of continuing education courses, for eample by taking into account the professional experience of the course participants, the respective qualifications of the teaching staff and the high flexibility of continuing education courses in comparison with study programmes.
