Vocational Education and Training
Within the scope of the CCI's public mandate is the creation of the structural framework and the standards for vocational education and training. Currently, the CCI provides approximately 17,000 intermediary and final examinations per year and oversees about 900 examination boards. More than 5,500 entrepreneurs, experts and executives volunteer to work as examiners. The CCI offers professional support to those companies who provide education and consultancy services covering careers requiring certain education levels, education methods and law regulations in approximately 2,300 on-site sessions.
To secure quality assurance, the CCI evaluates the suitability of the companies providing education and conducts examinations of trainer qualifications as well as courses for trainers. The CCI Academy Central Franconia offers courses to prepare for the examinations of master craftsman's diplomas, for specialist qualifications in various fields, professional training courses and tutorials.
With projects such as "Fit für Quali" and the competence check-up for students in lower secondary education we are helping future trainees choosing their career paths.
