The personal account of formation (CPF) in 10 questions/answers

This is a party! Gently, of course, but the first personal accounts of training (CPF), a device that replaces the DIF, have been funded. Here are ten tips to ask, you also, to benefit from it.

906 requests for training may 5, 2015 - 81 files of job seekers and 825 requests of the employees - accepted more than a million registered users on the site we cannot speak of a tidal wave, but a small start. The personal account of training (CPF), in theory, accessible to workers and job seekers from 1 January 2015, is far from its cruising speed, and begets still a lot of questions and disappointments.

Accustomed to the DIF, the employees are often very surprised to no longer be able to use their rights to training as before. The courses accepted within the framework of the CPF are, again, sanctioned certifying and predominantly long-term. "The idea of change is accepted, but its operation and its implementation remains complicated," says the head of communication of Uniformation*. Thus, the majority of the employees have the impression of having lost "the right to education". We have the case of some people who were thrown in a training course in the framework of the DIF and are unable to continue this project with the CPF."

job-seekers, for their part, are still waiting for their free education promised by François Rebsamen, the minister of Labour. However, things are moving forward and the range of courses available continues to expand.

know : the DIF shall remain in force for the time being in the public service.

1. How to benefit from the CPF?

The first step is to register on before you even choose a training program. Thanks to your social security number, the system will automatically calculate the number of hours of training that you capitaliserez each year, from march 2016. In the meantime, the employees and the job seekers can register on their behalf for the hours of DIF they have not used before January 2015.

2. What if I do not know the number of hours of DIF that I have left?

This issue is still quite thorny to number of employees and job applicants. In fact, the last employer was supposed to pass the remaining hours of DIF for each employee or applicant for employment, before January 31, 2015, to register it on his account CPF. Gold "many have not done so," says the advisor of a Fongecif. And sometimes it's very complicated to know the hours when we, for example, has had several CDD." Result: some calculate for themselves the number of hours of DIF that they are supposed to have. Even if the AFDAS, for example, reports that the certificate from the employer is required to validate these hours.

In the CDI, the employees were accumulating 20 hours of DIF per year, up to 120 hours. So, if you have worked full-time for 6 years without having used your DIF, you can register up to 120 hours on your account CPF. If you have worked in CSD, entitlement is made after the 4th month of the contract. As for jobseekers, the minister of Labour announced last February that each of them would be entitled to 100 hours of office on their personal account of training. Since, it is not yet known how this promise can be held.

3. How to choose a training?

once you register on the site and your number of hours of DIF is known, you can see the courses now available through the CPF. The principle: they must be sanctioned certifying - degree or vocational qualifications. The easiest way is to make the recherchedirectement on the site.

4. Who to contact to finance his training?

Still a pretty complicated question to this day. Employees must turn "naturally" to their employer, at least, that's what they advise to do. Problem: "employers find themselves limited in the explanations and for the most part unable to accompany him simply and clearly to their employees in this change. This observation is even more flagrant on the small structures which have already experienced difficulties in establishing proof of time DIF, and today, is lost on the operation of the CPF," says one of Opca.

and yet it is the employer, and for employees, who must send the application form of CPF to the OPCA can finance the training. The only fact to register on the dedicated site is not enough. On paper, it is expected that a consultant "professional development" may welcome you and accompany you in your approach. They are currently implementing (see end of article for contacts). For example, Afdas, which manages the fund, training of the professions of culture and communication, has already welcomed 2018 people in council, and professional development. For job seekers, the contact is classically Pôle emploi, which should offer this service in the near future.

5. What are the courses that have the highest chance of being funded?

The first statistics available on the CPF that have received a funding agreement reveal strong trends: these are the validations of professional experience (VAE) and language courses, preparing you for the Toeic, and to a lesser extent, the Bulats, language tests introduced recently in the CPF, which have received the most requests and applications... accepted. Uniformation, the OPCA in the social sector, has accepted the funding of 145 cases of CPF, including 104 APL and languages, AFDAS 115 language courses and 27 EAB out of a total ofe 197 shares (as of may 21, 2015).

But the CPF may also be useful to complete an individual training leave (CIF), when funding is insufficient. Condition: your training project to be successful, of course, to a degree, present in the formations list "CPF". The procedure is the same as for an application of ICF, you need to register on the site anymore The Fongecif or Opacif will mount the folder by adding your hours of CPF. "However, we should not prevent them from making a request to the CIF, even if it does not meet the criteria of the CPF," says a counsellor. This is a plus, but not mandatory.

6. What if the training that I want to follow is not in the list?

choose another in the same domain but eligible for the CPF, check to see if it is likely to be funded later, request that the business finance as part of its training plan, or request an individual leave of training. Each professional branch (the work is still ongoing for many of them) selects the courses they wish to see accessible by the CPF, and a commission (the Copanef) decides on the inscription or not. Again, disappointment may be waiting for you.

"short courses which allow, for example, authorisations for trades in the security are not accessible by the PCF, finds a consultant to the Fongecif. When they were fundable by the DIF, the employers validaient the training project. Now, many do not want to take care of it and it is the employability of these persons is at stake." However, the courses selected for the CPF also fit in according to the demands of employers. Training for language tests have recently been introduced, training for the office should also do their input... These two areas were among the most requested by employees under the DIF.
