Certificates Attributes (Level, Credit, Grades)

Course Level

All our courses have a level (1-8) assigned to them using the EQF (European Qualification Framework) reference system. The EQF is a common European reference system, which will link different countries’ national qualifications systems and frameworks together. All certificates are issued by TheEducators.com (unless it is stated otherwise). 

Descriptors defining levels in the European Qualifications Framework (EQF), Each of the 8 levels is defined by a set of descriptors indicating the learning outcomes relevant to qualifications at that level in any system of qualifications.


  • Knowledge: In the context of EQF, knowledge is described as theoretical and/or factual.
  • Skills: In the context of EQF, skills are described as cognitive (involving the use of logical, intuitive and creative thinking) and practical (involving manual dexterity and the use of methods, materials, tools and instruments).
  • Competence: In the context of EQF, competence is described in terms of responsibility and autonomy.

Course Credit

The Course credit, better known as continuing education credit (CEC) is a measure used in continuing education programs. Generally, a CEU is defined as 10 to 15 hours of participation in a continuing education program, with qualified instruction and sponsorship. CEC records are widely used to provide evidence of completion of continuing education requirements by employers, further education establishment, or simply for individuals to build their body of knowledge and expertise. The records also provide employers and education establishments with information on training pertinent to particular occupations.

The term CEC is in the public domain. Any organisation may award a traditional CEC without requiring any accreditation.
