A Bureau Veritas Company


CEPAS is a personnel and training course certification body. It was established in 1994 to meet the market’s demand for the highest level of competence and experience in professional activities.

In 2016, Bureau Veritas bought CEPAS to increase its market focus on training programmes and certifications. Bureau Veritas has been in operation since 1828, and has nearly 200 years of testing, inspection and certification experience under its belt, making this organisation the definitive global leader in the field. Bureau Veritas is recognised in over 140 countries worldwide, with a workforce of over 74,000 people across 1,400 offices and laboratories, making the CEPAS badge highly recognised anywhere in the world.

Since 1994, CEPAS has been the market leader 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 certifies people to meet ISO 17024 “General Requirements for Bodies Operating Certification of Persons”. As well as certifying people, CEPAS also certifies products and 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 is a go-to organisation for any certification. If CEPAS is on it, the value of the certificate will increase exponentially.

The e-Careers partnership with CEPAS relates to a market-leading Lean Six Sigma offering, which allows delegates to meet ISO 18404: “Competencies for key personnel and their organisations in relation to Six Sigma and Lean implementation”. Before the CEPAS and e-Careers partnership, meeting ISO 18404 was a long and complicated process.
