This project intends to create a system for the certification of competences in SMEs. Based on the pilot project CEMES, this system permits the identification, assessment, and recognition of specialist competences which have particularly been acquired through non-formal learning. In a European-wide standardized procedure and with the help of a standardized framework, these competences are confirmed. That is why suitable specialist areas are identified, competences are defined, and certification regulations are stipulated. The competences are defined by competence profiles which describe the skills that are necessary to solve a typical task in an SME. The specialist certificates are assessed on the basis of the ECTS in order to be able to compare them to professional qualifications.
