Objectives and Content
This innovation transfer project (ITP) shall advance and enhance the ECVET-based method for the assessment of professional competencies that has been developed in the EU-project ESO-CERT so that it will be applicable on a European-wide basis.  This method allows certifying competencies regardless of how they have been acquired. This means that learning outcomes from formal, non-formal and informal learning are merged. The enhanced method intends to assess modular training units that shall lead to complex action-oriented competencies. This assessment, which also considers the competencies that have been acquired at the work-place, leads to a greater transparency concerning the recognition and the acceptance of these competencies by the industry. This enhances the employees’ company-wide mobility.  

It must be guaranteed that the skills and the knowledge that have been acquired through informal and non-formal learning are taken into account. Therefore, we need competency tests.  For these tests, the innovation of the ESO-CRS project will be transferred and adjusted. These competency tests should be considered as grading tests so that a suitable training module corresponding to the level of competency can be recommended. This renders the learning process more efficient. After the training modules have been completed, there will be a final competency test which certifies the overall complex of the action-oriented competencies. This final test is the basis for the credit points that will then be given for the entire learning process. This whole process generates a full transparency of and also trust in the acquired competencies and moreover, all forms of learning are taken into account.
