Our company IVEPE-SEV

Institute of Industrial and Business Education & Training (IVEPE) is a non-profit educational organization, which was founded in 1980 by a group of big Greek industries, following an initiative of the Hellenic Federation of Enterprises and Industries (SEV), with the purpose of providing vocational training and further education to employees and unemployed. It constitutes the educational branch of SEV in the domain of Lifelong Learning and Training, thus reinforcing the role of SEV as a social partner. Since 2012, SEV has undertaken its institutional supervision and it now operates with the distinctive title IVEPE-SEV.

Since 1980, IVEPE-SEV provides reliable, broadly recognized and high-level vocational training and lifelong education to employees, unemployed, self-employed and people of vulnerable social groups in Greece and abroad. 

It is a recognized Centre of Vocational & Lifelong Training Level 2 (KDBM2) of nationwide reputation by the National Organization for the Certification of Qualifications & Vocational Guidance (EOPPEP) of the Ministry of Education, Research & Religious Affairs. 

IVEPE-SEV offers high-level programs of vocational training in a broad range of subjects. The training sessions are conducted at our privately-owned facilities in Athens, Thessaloniki, Patras and Volos and also in-house on business premises. At the same time, we have undertaken the implementation of training programs for employees and unemployed through National and European Programs. In addition, we have created and completed training programs, which are funded through Corporate Social Responsibility programs of international organizations and companies.

IVEPE-SEV collaborates with educational institutions and organizations of international prestige (BINDT, IASSC, Carmagen Eng., IMechE, CfPA and so forth), providing to those being trained internationally recognized services.

For the quality assurance of our services we have developed and implement a certified Quality Management System that meets the requirements of the international standard ISO9001:2008, for the planning and the realization of vocational training programs, whereas at the same time we have a certified Managerial Competence System (SDEP) according to the Hellenic Standard ELOT 1429:2008, for programming and managing co-funded projects.

IVEPE-SEV is an independent Persons Certification Body, accredited by the Hellenic Accreditation System (E.SY.D.) – a competent, by virtue of law 3066/2002, national authority, supervised by the Ministry of Development – according to the requirements of ELOT standard ΕΝ ISO/IEC 17024:2012, to conduct certifications of persons.
