Description of the procedure for the validation of prior learning 

National vocational qualification

(NPK) is:

·         the procedure for obtaining a publicly valid document (certificate)

·         the process of obtaining a profession

·         the process of recognizing or confirming already acquired knowledge and skills.

The process of acquiring NPKs is generally divided into three sets:

1. candidate application

2. advising the candidate and preparing his collection folder (certificates, proofs, reference letters, articles, acknowledgments ...)

3. verification and validation of NPK


The candidate applies for the procedure on the announced application deadline. Check the implementation queries on the website of the organizations that implement the NPK for a particular profession.


During the counselling process, the candidate prepares a portfolio. The relevant committee assesses the portfolio and recognises the catalogue content in part or full. If the committee is unable to recognise all catalogue content, it assigns tasks to the candidate for verification. 

Verification method

Direct verification takes place at a place of assessment in the form of practical work and an oral presentation. The place of assessment (simulated user living environment) must meet the relevant material conditions.

Verification and assessment are carried out by committees for the verification and validation of national vocational qualifications, appointed by the National Examination Centre (NEC). Committee members must be licensed by the National Examination Centre.
