The initial Qualiopi certification process according to version V9, the most recent and most demanding to date, checks the implementation of quality actions in real-life situations, with demonstration of results.


Qualiopi is much more than just a certification. It's a guarantee of quality, a symbol of trust and proof of commitment to excellence in the field of professional training. But what exactly is Qualiopi, and what are the criteria and indicators verified to obtain it?

This certification is compulsory for all providers of competency development programs wishing to benefit from public or mutualized funds.
