ISO Certification

The RWTH International Academy consciously commits itself to implementing and continuously improving consistent minimum standards for processes and activities pertaining to quality.

The realisation of uniform standards of quality, thanks to a practised quality mirrored in all our services, creates trust and transparency. The RWTH International Academy and its quality management system have, therefore, a triple certification by TÜV SÜD: According to ISO 9001:2008, the international standard DIN ISO 29990 “Learning services for non-formal education and training - Basic requirements for service providers”, and TÜV SÜD and AZAV – Concession for providers and measures of employment promotion based on SGB III.



The new DIN ISO 29990:2012 focuses on requirements regarding education programmes and processes and describes the demands posed towards the management of the education service provider. The emphasis of DIN ISO 29990 lies on composition of the education programmes and processes. Thanks to its certification by TÜV SÜD, the RWTH International Academy increases both transparency and the comparability of its academic further education programmes and services. In doing so, all quality links of the entire value chain are covered: from the idea to the conception, the marketing, and the implementation and quality assurance. As a result, a strict compliance to nationally and internationally recognised standards of quality is guaranteed.

In addition, the RWTH International Academy has for many years been an active member of the Aachen Chamber of Industry and Commerce’s (IHK) group for quality assurance in professional further education.

If you have questions concerning the ISO certifications of the RWTH International Academy, please contact us. We are happy to be of assistance.
