As part of the ongoing assignment of training programmes to the German Qualifications Framework (DQR), discussion is currently taking place about the level-assignment of the theory-reduced three-year skilled practitioner qualification pursuant to Section 66 of the Vocational Training Act (BBiG) and Section 42m of the Crafts and Trades Regulation Code (HwO).
