QUALITY CONTROL

Utbildningsföretagen's certificate for quality authorization The quality authorization is checked and issued by Utbildningsföretagen. The authorization is valid until further notice and is revised regularly, but will be terminated if the member company at any time does not meet the included criteria or the conditions for membership.

For each of the included quality criteria, the member company must be able to describe in detail how it works and attach documents and routines on which it is based. The documents must be signed with the date stated for when the routine/deion applies from.

The documentation is assessed by Utbildningsföretagen's Authorization Board, which then gives a recommendation to the board of Utbildningsföretagen, which decides whether authorization should be granted. For a visual deion of the authorization process, click here.
