In 2002, the law on Validation of experience opened a new right for individuals making possible the recognition of what they have learnt, formally or informally, in their professional and personal life by official qualifications. All training and learning organisations, private or public, offering qualifications registered in the national list, the RNCP (Répertoire National des Certifications Professionnelles) are obliged to set up a procedure and to give an answer to candidates applying.
