Professional Qualification Recognition Training


UK NARIC’s Centre for Professional Qualifications is pleased to announce a two-day training opportunity for those working in professional qualification recognition.

Day 1 will be the Level 1 Introductory Professional Qualification Recognition Training. This session gives an introduction to the principles of recognising professional qualifications. It provides an introductory level or refresher course on the subject matter, including topics such as the basic principles of EU/EEA professional recognition and best practise in processing applications.

Day 2 will be the Level 2 Professional Qualification Recognition Training. This session provides more in-depth information (that could be considered at policy and managerial level), and would be suitable for those who already have an understanding of the principles of recognition and are looking to develop their knowledge further.


Tuesday 29th and Wednesday 30th November 2016


St Giles Hotel, London
