Abstract: This paper discusses vocational training and e-Training within the context of IT SMEs, focusing on the process of assessment and certification. More specifically, current trends in the assessment and certification of IT skills are discussed, as revealed in the study of related work. In addition, issues in traditional and e-Assessment are presented, and a new approach: “Assessment 2.0”, which exploits the characteristics of contemporary trainees, is proposed. Finally, after examining relevant research projects, and current European certification programs, the ELEVATE project approach to certification and assessment is introduced with an example. More precisely, the proposed methodology for defining competence-based learning is put forward.
