After this orientation phase, guidance (individual or collective) linked to the occupation is provided in a certified validation Centre, with a specialist of the occupation. Guidance allows the candidate to position himself in regards of the relevancy of his skills validation procedure and to realize his chances of success. The volunteer registration of the candidate to a validation test can happen in the wake of the guidance process or later.

Once registered and summoned, the candidate passes a validation test or is placed in a real life professional situation. The performance of the candidate is evaluated in an objective way, based on an evaluation chart gathering the essential aspects of a professional performance. The observant, professional of the occupation, verifies the smooth running of the test.

Once the test is over, the jury composed by professionals in the field (the manager of the Centre, the evaluator and the observant), gathers to deliberate.

In case of failure, the candidate can request an appointment with the manager of the Centre or the evaluator who will explain to him precisely the reasons of the failure.

In case of success, the validation Centre can direct the candidate towards information and/or orientation service which will advise him in regards of the most appropriate use of his qualification Certificate.
