Diplomas recognised in France and at a European level

Our diploma training courses award students with diplomas registered at the French National Register of Professional Qualifications. According to the new European nomenclature (National framework for professional qualifications referenced at European Level) these certifications equate to levels 7, 6 and 5 (equivalent to a 5, 4 and 2-year high education diploma). They can be accessed through Accreditation of Prior Learning. What difference does this registration at the French National Register of Professional Qualifications make? In order to adapt to changes in the humanitarian sector, Bioforce conducts a survey every 2-3 years with humanitarian organisations regarding the skills required to carry out each profession for which we provide training. These skills are then listed in a job reference document which is used to guide the content of our courses. Each time our courses are redesigned, the details are sent to the French National Commission for Professional Qualifications. Approval by the Commission and registration at the French National Register of Professional Qualifications, marks the state’s recognition as well as its suitability to the job market.
