Becoming an approved training provider

There are several types of training providers authorised to deliver training in Luxembourg. In accordance with their status, the legislation imposes specific conditions to be able to practise.

Private training bodies

Private training bodies are subject to the rules of the right to practise, and must hold a  ministerial authorisation in order to provide continuing training.

The authorisation to practise as a "manager of a continuing vocational training body" is strictly personal. It is  issued nominatively both for capital companies (legal entities) and partnerships (natural persons) by the Ministry of the Economy (Ministère de l'Economie) at the recommendation of the Ministry of Education, Children and Youth (MENJE).

Each body must comply with the conditions for worthiness and qualifications required in order to practise this business activity.


In order to obtain the business permit as a manager of a continuing vocational training body, the application forms must be filled in and sent to: 

Direction générale PME et Entrepreneuriat

Ministère de l’Économie
19-21, boulevard Royal
L-2914 Luxembourg

Formulaire de demande d'autorisation d'établissement

Formulaire de déclaration sur l'honneur

The following should be attached to the business permit application form:

  • fiscal stamp of €24 or proof of bank transfer,
  • A copy of the articles of association,
  • The name of the Company Director with signing authority (accompanied by his/her diplomas and proof of work experience, his/her criminal record and his/her legally drawn up non-bankruptcy certificate, if failing to reside in Luxembourg during the last five years.

Non-profit organisations, foundations

Private non-profit organisations (asbl), foundations and natural persons are individually approved, on request, by the minister responsible for vocational training.

The application is accepted in the form of a ministerial order stating that these types of providers have been approved as organisers of continuing vocational training courses. 


These training providers must:

  • Send a letter addressed to the minister of national Education (Ministre de l’Education nationale) requesting  specific accreditation for training ,
  • Attach their articles of association to this letter.

Ministère de l'Education nationale, de l'Enfance et de la Jeunesse

Service de la formation professionnelle

29, rue Aldringen
L-1118 Luxembourg

Asbl - arrêté ministériel type

Foreign training bodies

Foreign training bodies must be authorised to provide continuing vocational training (formation professionnelle continue - FPC) in their country of origin

They are therefore not subject to the accreditation application process required by Luxemburgish legislation, but rather to the processes in place in their own country. 

However, the process becomes compulsory if they decide to set up in Luxembourg.
