Abstract
In this communication eight models of competence certification (professional and labor) recognized at an international level are characterized. These models are carried out from organizations operating Certification Systems for Persons. These Certification Systems are currently active in Madrid region, as an innovative approach for employment policies. Five of these models are certified by the National Organization of Accreditation (ENAC), according to the international norm (ISO 17024) which establishes requirements that ensure quality of organizations operating on certification systems for persons. Thirteen indicators have been defined to characterize and compare their different aspects. Results evidenced conceptual differences and similarities within certification models. CERPER, IPMA, EOQ, PMI, People CMM, Coaching- are oriented to the certification of professional competences with a voluntary character for the workers, and on the other hand,-CERTIAEND, CESOL and SEDIGAS- are associated to a compulsory requirements to access a specific job.
