National vocational qualifications may be acquired by adults who:

  • have reached the age of 18, or, exceptionally, the youngsters whose apprentice or apprentice status has expired and who have relevant work experience;
  • they want to go on a career path without having to obtain a higher level of vocational education.

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

Practical verification with an oral presentation.

There are no special conditions.

Providers of procedures for identifying and validating national vocational qualifications are entered in a register of providers maintained in the relevant collection of the National Reference Point for Occupational Qualifications. Providers include: vocational schools, companies, inter-company training centres, adult education centres, chambers of commerce, etc.

A candidate demonstrates the attainment of the knowledge, skills and competences defined in the catalogue of standards of vocational knowledge and skills.
