SGS, the world's leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company, is pleased to have been accredited to audit and award Qualiopi certification – a new certification for vocational trainers in France that will be compulsory from January 1, 2022, if they wish to receive public funding.

Qualiopi certification provides companies with a recognized national benchmark guaranteeing the quality of vocational training. By auditing against 32 indicators, it is hoped the scheme will foster consistency in the quality of training whilst encouraging continuous improvement across all areas.

"We are delighted to be helping trainers achieve Qualiopi certification" says Cecile Bouchet, Department Manager, SGS. She continues, "certification will not only allow them access to public funding, it will allow companies and individuals to easily find and access high quality training."

SGS is authorized to perform both the audit and the award itself. Trainers can choose to assess their own compliance using a self-assessment tool then to ask for an audit. The certification can be awarded by SGS, validating the quality of training and providing clarity and confidence for trainers, training organizations and trainees alike.
