These certificates confirm the competence of persons for a certain profession or activity. Certification is based on a test or examination.
Based on competence requirements for a particular profession or field of activity, defined by a qualified sector committee, tests or examinations are organised to assess whether participants have these competences.
As a certification body, BCCA organises and monitors this process. We ensure that it meets the requirements of the international standard NBN EN ISO/IEC 17024.
If all requirements have been met, BCCA will issue a certificate for that person.
To maintain the validity of the certificate, it must be shown that the person is effectively exercising the profession. Therefore BCCA organises on a regular basis inspections and examinations verifying if the person’s competences are maintained.
