Training sessions for advisors

Do you live abroad and would like advice on “professional recognition”?

Our regular online training sessions answer these questions from people interested in recognition and migration.

  • What is professional recognition?
  • What is the procedure?
  • What should be noted before applying?
  • What is important for the application?
  • What are regulated professions?
  • What happens after the application?
  • What information is available?
  • Which authority is responsible?


Our online training sessions consist of 4 modules:

In four interactive modules the procedure of recognising a vocational qualification is shown from the perspective of the applicant: From initial advice before the application, the application itself, and right up to possible results. Guest presentations provide insights on local recognition guidance and share experiences with the recognition of vocational qualifications from third countries.
