CECE – Certified Expert in CE Marking


With CECE Certified Expert in CE Marking you achieve the highest possible qualification in the area of CE marking. As part of this qualification program, the entire CE marking process is explained in detail. Over the entirety of the training course, the path, from risk assessment to the attachment of the CE mark, is explained to you using a virtual machine model. The model shows the differences in the procedure for partly completed and completed machines as well as beyond this for interlinked machines. The Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC is naturally the basis for all observations. The complete qualification as CECE is certified by TÜV NORD. After the test is passed you will receive a TÜV certificate recognised worldwide and the title "CECE – Certified Expert in CE Marking".
