UNICERT has submitted the SEnDIng certification process for official accreditation
The last milestone of the SEnDIng project has been the certification process for all the trainees who met the project requirements and had the opportunity to participate in the official certification procedures. UNICERT S.A. is the expert partner from Greece accredited by E.O.P.P.E.P. (National Organization for the Certification of Qualifications & Vocational Guidance), and was responsible to design, develop and perform all the necessary actions to create a high-quality certification cycle process according to European Standards. During the period of the development of the certification procedure, UNICERT S.A. cooperated closely with all the project partners in order to achieve a high quality certification scheme.
The certification exams in SEnDIng were reorganized and implemented online through a TELEPROCTORING system due to the pandemic outbreak. The system was designed following the principals of ISO/IEC 17024:2012 in Certification of Persons by E.SY.D. (Hellenic Accreditation System), which bears testament to the fact that the certification process is conducted with impartiality based on substantiated competency, while at the same time, it renders certificates recognized and valid as being equivalent to those awarded by the National Accreditation Bodies of the Countries-States of E.A. (European Cooperation for Accreditation).
Finally, the most promising and added value to the sustainability of the project is that UNICERT S.A. decided to accreditate the SEnDing certification process by E.SY.D in order to be officially valid among European countries. The official European Accreditation from the National Accreditxation Bodies of the Countries-States of E.A. by E.SY.D., is giving high value in academic level and a tool for the personal and professional development in the job market of the trainees that will obtain this certification. This achievement will raise and maintain the interest of potential trainees to attend the SEnDing MOOC, even after the completion of the project, and to participate in such certification exams.
