TRECVET: Transnational Recognition of European Certification in Vocational Education
The TRECVET project is a European partnership project designed to enable recognisation
for amateur and professional boating qualifications across Europe to address various
deficiencies and problems in the current requirements and practices in the maritime
sector, predominately in European Union countries.
This project will develop an innovative software tool which, by breaking syllabi
down into their smallest parts and making them comparable in an objective way, will
enable authorities to more easily implement the ECVET principles.
By the end of the project it is envisaged that this tool will provide a solution
to the specific problem in the SCV sector and give acceptance and mutual recognition
of comparable qualifications from different EU Member States within the SCV sector.
The concrete aims of this project are to develop an impartial administrative tool
to provide transparency and simplicity when assessing the equivalence of different

GETAFIX: Gaining Educational Training Analysis For Identifying Cross Border Systems
The requirement for this project arises because currently within the ‘Small Commercial
Vessel’ (SCV) maritime sector of the EU, qualifications of one Member State are
not recognised by the authorities of other Member States. This restricts mobility
and employment opportunities.
The European partnership offer the relevant experience and expertise to the project
and will be tasked to gather data of the regulations, training standards and qualifications
from all 27 EU member States plus Turkey and Croatia.
A key objective is to establish the extent of the problem across Europe. The project
will identify commonalities, country specific requirements and best practice within
the various national authorities’ syllabi and regulations within the SCV sector
of the EU.
This data will be processed and presented on this website to allow national syllabi
and systems to be easily compared.
