At a time of widespread economic, technological, ecological and organisational change, professional qualifications and skills as we know them are being profoundly affected in a way which that has major implications for individuals, companies and the community as a whole.
As evidence of a person's qualifications and the learning outcomes of a certifying course, professional qualifications are crucial points of reference for employers, work collectives and individuals alike.
Indeed, an efficient professional certifications system that meets employees' needs and employers' expectations plays a key role in addressing contemporary challenges : securing career paths and professional mobility, job appeal and quality, skills recognition, upskilling and updating skills, national competitiveness and full employment.
