If you are searching for training in Ireland you may notice the above logo appearing beside the words QQI certified or certified by QQI, but who are QQI?
“On 6 November 2012, FETAC completed its amalgamation with HETAC, NQAI and IUQB and a new integrated agency, Quality and Qualifications Ireland (QQI), was established. FETAC, HETAC and the NQAI are now dissolved. The new agency will continue to provide continuity of service as it evolves. QQI will bring any changes and updates to your attention over the coming weeks on its website www.qqi.ie” Source: ( http://www.fetac.ie/fetac/awardsinfo/awards.htm )
It’s very important to note whether the course you are taking is certified by this new awarding body and to familiarize yourself with the new QQI logo.
There is also an updated National framework of Qualifications (NFQ)
