Awarding Bodies

The National Qualifications Authority has developed and operationalized the Awarding Bodies System to identify criteria, procedures and requirements of approving institutions as awarding bodies as well as their roles and responsibilities. Among these are quality assurance of RTPs performance. Awarding bodies have to comply with NQA`s policies and procedures and systems related to qualifications management and learners registration besides ensuring the achievement of learning outcomes.

Currently, there are three approved Awarding Bodies in the United Arab Emirates:

  1. Abu Dhabi Center for Technical and Vocational education and Training (ACTVET) : its scope covers Abu Dhabi Emirate and Northern Emirates except Dubai.
  2. Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) : its scope covers Dubai Emirate only.
  3. Security Qualifications Center (Ministry of Interior) : its scope covers security training providers belonging to Ministry of Interior.
