Validation of prior learning
Description of the procedure for the validation of prior learning 

The candidate completes the application form for national vocational qualifications, where he also states whether he wishes to complete the course for acquiring knowledge for the NPK or if he wishes to only pass the exam.

The National Vocational Qualification (NPK) is a formal confirmation that you can prove your qualifications for pursuing a particular profession.


The procedures for acquiring NPK are relatively fast, as the acquisition of NPK can take into account the skills and knowledge acquired during the profession, volunteer work or leisure activities, by participating in informal education programs, self-learning, etc. NPK enables you to validate your informally acquired knowledge and not waste valuable time to learn what you already know.


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

candidate application.

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

verification and validation of NPK.

Documents needed 

Admission requirements:
