The law eliminated the ‘qualification conflict’
Federal Law No. 158-FL of May 25, 2020 amended the Federal Law ‘On Education in the Russian Federation’, the essence of which is that the qualification document now confirms not only the assignment of a rank, class or category based on the results of professional training, but also obtaining qualifications in the profession of a worker, the position of an employee (if any).
The introduction of these changes is due to the fact that at present not all professions of workers, positions of employees require the establishment of ranks, classes, categories. This follows, meanwhile, from the layout of the professional standard, approved by order of the Ministry of Labor of Russia dated April 12, 2013 No. 147n. So, more than 70 professions of workers do not have categories, 8 positions of employees do not have classes or categories.
Thus, the qualification document in these cases will now de jure confirm the receipt of a qualification that will meet the necessary skills, knowledge and other characteristics, which, in turn, are determined by the relevant professional standards.
