Validation is the procedure used to recognise and give academic value to official studies certified by the competent entity.
To apply for a validation it is an indispensable requirement to be enrolled on the training cycle for which the validation is being sought.
Validations are classified in terms of who resolves them:
- DIRECT VALIDATIONS: these validations are resolved directly by the centre, as they are set out in the decrees on curricula and in the regulations on validation.
- SPECIAL VALIDATIONS: these are all validations that cannot be resolved directly by the centre but by the Directorate General for Initial Vocational Training and Special Education (DGFPIERE).
