The stages of EAV

What are the requirements?

You must prove that you have carried out, continuously or not, for a cumulative period of one year, salaried, non-salaried or voluntary activities directly related to the diploma in question.
The learning outcomes that can give rise to validation are all the professional and/or social and personal skills and knowledge resulting from these activities.

How to target the title or diploma?

If you do not know which certification to aim for, you can contact the counsellors of the various organisations with a general mission of information and professional orientation (known as "Points relais"): Pôle Emploi, CIO, Service Universitaire d'Information et d'Orientation, CIDJ, Missions Locales, Points academics, Points Emploi, CIBC, etc.

The counsellor will inform and advise you about VAE, the regulations for diplomas, titles and certificates of qualification.
If you know what type of certification you wish to obtain, you must contact the institution or body that issues it directly in order to initiate the VAE procedure specific to it.
AtUniversité Savoie Mont Blanc, for a list of diplomas that may correspond to your experience, we advise you to consult our offer of academics Université Savoie Mont Blanc.

If you are an employee, you can ask your employer to cover the VAE as part of the plan at academics, or from your employer's Competence Operator (OPCO).

You can also ask your employer for a 24-hour "VAE leave" in order to work on your VAE file and attend the interview with the jury.

  • If you are self-employed, you should contact the organization to which you are contributing under your academics continuous professional membership.

In any case, we strongly advise you to inquire as soon as possible about financing your EAV. Indeed, the average response time is 2 months, which postpones your commitment to the EAV procedure.
