What is VAE?
The Validation of Acquired Experience (VAE) is a way of obtaining certification other than through initial training by valuing professional experience acquired over a minimum of 12 months.
This approach is based on the assumption that you have already carried out the activities related to the certification in question; you must therefore master the knowledge and skills required to obtain the certification. This is what you will have to demonstrate during the passage in front of the Jury with a defense.
With the skills in line with the chosen certification, any person, whatever their age, nationality, status and level of training and who can prove an experience of at least one year, directly related to the certification targeted, can claim VAE, whether for all skill blocks or for a specific block.

Each situation is examined on a case-by-case basis and requires significant reflection and research on the part of the Disability Advisor. For each situation identified, a personalized follow-up is organized during the training and compensation can be set up:
- Organization: adapted schedules, processing involving specific absences, etc.
- Support: tutoring, team awareness, local management coaching, etc.
- Techniques: adapted equipment, ergonomic seat, vehicle accessibility, etc.
Dorine RAICHON, disability advisor, is present on the Clermont-Ferrand campus and will be able to answer your questions and requests.
