Course Conclusion, Certificates, and Farewell

We will issue an EQF5 certificate with the successful completion of the course.

Additionally:

The Europass Mobility Certification will be given on the last day of the course.

What Kind of Certification?

Europass Mobility Certification is a document that records the skills and competencies acquired by an individual during a training period in another European country. This certification is part of the Europass framework, which aims to improve the transparency of qualifications and competencies across Europe. The Mobility Certification is particularly valuable for individuals who have participated in exchange programs, internships, or training sessions abroad, as it provides official recognition of their learning experiences and achievements in an international context.
