Get certificates and proof of your skills

Last updated: 6/12-2022

If you have training or work experience, but lack the papers or certificates to prove it, you can validate your skills. If you validate your skills you’ll be able to finish your studies and find work faster.

Validating your skills means that you describe and assess your experience and what your skills are. You are given the opportunity to demonstrate this both practically and theoretically in interviews, tests and work samples.

Arbetsförmedlingen can help you with the validation. You'll be helped in assessing on what level your skills are and whether you need further training in order to work in a specific profession.

Arbetsförmedlingen will document your validation in a skills certificate or a skills diploma.
