To be able to provide training leading to a qualification, a training organisation must have the formal agreement of the qualification issuer[1]. The bodies and ministries issuing qualifications must therefore identify all partners authorised to prepare learners for their qualifications. This mandatory declaration must be made to France compétences, via a web platform, no later than 1 March 2021.

France compétences provides a platform which simplifies the declaration procedure. The bodies that issue qualifications must finalise the declaration of their partners by 1 March 2021 at the following web address:

Organisations that have not registered their partnerships may be issued formal notice to comply with their obligations.

This information is published in the list records and transmitted to the Caisse des Dépôts for checking, via the EDOF platform, of organisations offering training leading to a qualification.

Since this obligation came into force, pursuant to the Professional Future Law, more than 42,000 qualifications have been entered into France compétences’ two national directories. Partners are therefore mentioned in 13% of records in the RNCP and in 8% of records in the specific directory.

The objective is to provide key information for users, financial backers and operators in the fields of employment and careers advice, particularly with a view to checking the eligibility of training courses for the personal training account.
