The assessment, verification and awarding aspects of METIS will be tackled by the METIS curriculum and training; in parallel, relevant tools and mechanisms will be developed to promote the alignment of METIS curriculum and training with National Qualification Frameworks (NQFs) of the countries represented by the educational partners of METIS as well as the European Qualification Framework (EQF).

A crucial element of this model will be the development of documents that can be used by partners to interact with relevant counterparts (national and / or regional authorities, agencies, certification and accreditation bodies, etc. depending on the specific national contexts and procedures). Those documents can take the form of Memoranda of Understanding to promote the mutual recognition of the METIS curriculum.
