Cqp: obtain your certificate of professional qualification with afpma


A CQP, or Professional Qualification Certificate , is a certification allowing recognition of the skills acquired in a professional branch and attesting to the mastery of a specific trade. Get yours with AFPMA!


A CQP is accessible to students wishing to complete their training, to job seekers but also to employees who want to develop their skills. Vocational Qualification Certificates are developed for each professional branch in order to meet the specific needs of each profession.

It is possible to obtain a diploma in two ways: through training or via a VAE (Validation of Acquired Experience). As part of the training in a school or a specialized organization, a period of professionalization is required. VAE consists in justifying skills acquired with professional experience by demonstrating them through tests.

The CQP is not a diploma issued by the State, and they are not all recognized by the National Directory of Professional Certifications (RNCP). They are recognized in the collective agreement of their respective professional branch.
