Modell F

Certification of advanced training organisations according to Modell F (flexible advanced training in all circumstances of life)
(The certification by SQS is not offered any longer. Existing certificates stay valid until the end of their validity.)


Model F schools will have established standards for their studies/courses that they will be able to demonstrate through a set of criteria with all the basic documentation. The criteria range from the admission process for students, the personal responsibility of students, handling the interruption of studies or training courses, partial and intermediate qualifications, resumption of studies/courses, optimization of school education and professional activity, to the transparency and recognition of learning achievements at other schools or extracurricular experiences.


The students can determine the pace of learning itself, interruption, restarting and conclusion of the studies. The skills acquired during the interruption to the educational programme may be credited appropriately.

Target groups

3 years - there is an annual audit to ensure that standards are being maintained and a recertification audit after 3 years.


The SQS certificate of conformity with Modell F has national recognition.


Modell F is compatible with ISO 9001 (Quality management), ISO 29990 and eduQua.
