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.
