What are the UAE National Qualifications?

UAE National Qualifications are qualifications at Levels (1) to (9) on the National Qualifications Framework for the United Arab Emirates (QFEmirates).  Each individual level in the framework represents a hierarchy of relative difficulty, complexity and depth.  It indicates the achievement required to gain a particular qualification recognised at that specific level.  They meet the quality standards laid down by the National Qualifications Authority (NQA) and the Vocational Education and Training Awards Council (VETAC) and are benchmarked to accepted international standards. 

All accredited qualifications endorsed by the National Qualifications Authority (NQA) are delivered by Registered Training Providers (RTP’s), assessed and subject to external quality assurance by ACTVET. Certification of learners is subject to approval by an external verifier appointed by ACTVET.
