CertNexus has recently signed an ICO agreement with Knowledge and Human Resource Development Authority, KHDA, in Dubai, which regulates the technical and vocational education and training sectors and administers the awarding of international qualifications. CertNexus will be recognized as an international certification organization in Dubai. This verifies that the activities of CertNexus are in accordance with KHDA’s regulations, and recognizes that CertNexus qualifications meet the level of the National Qualifications Framework for the purposes of access to education and training in the United Arab Emirates.
