Le compte personnel de formation

In France, all employees and jobseekers aged 16 and over have since 1 January 2015 a personal training account (CPF). The CPF is part of the compte personnel d’activités (CPA). After opening your CPA, you will be able to choose your training, create and complete your training file, and then apply for funding. To use your DIF/CPF hours, you must apply for financial support. Depending on your case, your financial support may be your employer, your Fongecif or your Opacif, the OPCO (former OPCA) of your company, Pôle emploi or your Region. To create your CPA and access the CPF, visit the new portal www.moncompteactivite.gouv.fr / Open since March 2018.
