Since 1994, CEPAS have been the market leaders in certifying competence and experience in professional activities.
Their mission statement is to “guarantee a high quality of both personnel and training to the market, in the sectors where the demand is the highest”, something which aligns strongly with the e-Careers mission statement.
CEPAS certify people to meet ISO 17024 “General Requirements for Bodies Operating Certification of Persons”. As well as certifying people, CEPAS also certifies products & services to meet ISO standard ISO 17065. On top of certifying both people and products, CEPAS qualifies and monitors training courses given by training providers around the world.
In short, CEPAS are the place to go for any kind of certification, so if their name is on it, the value of whatever has been certified increases exponentially.
As mentioned above, CEPAS’s experience in certification means that if something is accredited by them, it meets the very highest of our standards.
Our new partnership with CEPAS relates to our brand new Lean Six Sigma offering, which can allow delegates to meet ISO 18404 “Competencies for key personnel and their organizations in relation to Six Sigma and Lean implementation”. Prior to CEPAS’s involvement, meeting ISO 18404 was a long and complicated process.
The CEPAS company values highlight their attitude towards certification standards:
