There are many criteria to take into account when choosing your training: professional integration, the adequacy of the training with your project, the program, the recognition of the training and the school, but also its duration and its cost.
1. Before looking for training, your professional project must be well defined
Whether it is to maintain one’s employability, move to another position or retrain, training is a way of obtaining the knowledge necessary for a job. Your project must be built according to your aspirations and of course according to the needs of the job market and the change of profession you want to undertake. So, to find the right training you must above all be able to answer the following questions:
What knowledge do you need to get?
What level of education is required?
Are training courses or schools particularly sought after?
2. Research existing training and organizations
To qualify for a CPF PTP, your training must be eligible for the CPF (Personal Training Account) and be certified (registered in the RNCP or in the specific directory). You can check it on the “ My activity account ” site or even on the “ Professional certification ” site. Let’s be clear: there is no place where you will find all the training that exists. Different research is needed to find existing formations and organizations. A few tips, depending on your needs:
