Add value to your professional experience

Gain recognition for your years of experience by obtaining recognized professional qualification.


French law, under Article L. 6411-1 of the Labor Code, stipulates that anyone, regardless of age, nationality, status or level of training, can apply for validation of acquired experience (VAE) by providing proof of experience directly related to the certification in question. The El Khomri law of August 8, 2016 specifies that the minimum duration of activity required for the validation application to be admissible is one year, whether or not the activity has been carried out continuously.

It is possible to obtain the title of Digital Director issued by ARTFX through validation of acquired experience (VAE) by having one’s salaried or non-salaried activity in the digital image field recognized. ARTFX has set up a VAE support program to provide methodological assistance to VAE candidates.
