Bio-FIT project proposes Qualification Awarding System (Bio-FIT QAS) that envisages upon completion of Bio-FIT training programme, trainees to gain two types of qualifications:
Awards. To get an award a trainee has to have 1 to 13 credit points which equals 10 to 120 hours of learning.
Certificates. Certificates are given upon acquisition of 14 to 30 credits which equals 130 to 300 hours.
The two types of qualification can be given at any level of difficulty, specified by the training programme (5, 6 or 7). This is due to the fact that these documents reveal the size of the qualification and not its difficulty level. The latter is indicated by the title of the qualification, which also reveals the size of the qualification and its subject.
