The BTSO MESYEB project, initiated by BTSO (Bursa Chamber of
Commerce and Industry), addresses the legal requirement for obtaining
professional competence certificates in hazardous jobs in the field of
professional competence and occupational safety in our country. The project
aims to assess and certify the professional competencies of individuals
working or intending to work in various sectors, including construction,
automotive, chemistry, mining, metal, energy and textiles, through
measurement and assessment tools prepared on a profession-specific basis.
This process contributes to the creation of a qualified workforce.
Covering a total area of 3,500 square meters, the center represents a 3.5
million TL investment and is the most comprehensive certification center in
Turkey, providing professional competence certificates in 104 different
professions, including construction, chemical, oil, rubber, plastics,
automotive, metal, textiles, mining, electrical-electronics and energy sectors.
BTSO MESYEB, accredited by TÜRKAK (Turkish Accreditation Agency) according
to the TS EN ISO/IEC 17024 Standard and authorized by MYK (Vocational
Qualifications Authority), commenced its services under the name BTSO MESYEB
in 2014. It has conducted exams in 54 different cities, with a focus on
Bursa and has certified 100,000 professionals by evaluating their
