The European Qualifications Framework (EQF) is a translation tool that helps communication and comparison between qualifications systems in Europe. Its eight common European reference levels are described in terms of learning outcomes: knowledge, skills and competences. This allows any national qualifications systems, national qualifications frameworks (NQFs) and qualifications in Europe to relate to the EQF levels. Learners, graduates, providers and employers can use these levels to understand and compare qualifications awarded in different countries and by different education and training systems.

  1. Abwassermeister (Geprüfter)/Abwassermeisterin (Geprüfte)

    Type of qualification This qualification is a nationwide standardised advanced vocational training. In the occupational context, vocational education and training in Germany has a multi-level system of advanced vocational training qualifications which are regulated in a nationally standardised manner. Within the scope of regulated advanced training, three levels of advanced training are differentiated. They differ with regard to competence requirements and the associated differing areas of possible company deployment. They require completion of a vocational qualification (in a recognised training occupation and/or recognised advance vocational training) or evidence of a comparable qualification. This then serves as the basis of the qualifications. Those completing the qualifications are equipped for the autonomous and responsible assumption of demanding tasks in companies. Advanced training courses leading to the qualification of master craftsman (e.g. master craftsman in the craft trades, certified master craftsman, certified industrial foreman, master craftsman in agriculture) are an example of the second level of advanced professional training. Master craftsman qualifications are mainly concentrated in the technical craft trades, industry and agriculture. The main task focuses of a master craftsman are autonomous management of a company, e.g. in the craft trades sector, or technical, organisational and human resources management of working groups at industrial or craft trade companies or other institutions. ...
