European work forces need to be highly flexible and need to work for industries across Europe. Imagine that you are attending a course in one country and you successfully complete the exam at the end of the course. The certificate issued will then be recognized by certifiers and training organizations in all European countries. This will automatically lead to a higher recognition of the certificate issued and increase the chances of working for customers within the European market. Solving this issue, was the main reason for the founding of the first European network EQN which then lead to the founding of the European Certification and Qualification Association = ECQA (founded 2009).
