What is the CPF? 

Definition of the Personal Training Account

Supported by the Caisse des Dépôts et des Consignations, the Compte Personnel de Formation (CPF) is a financing lever for all professionals wishing to enhance their skills. By amassing rights based on your hours worked, you can consult "My training account"to find out how much you're entitled to, and choose the certified training that suits you best.

Who can benefit from the CPF? 

The CPF is intended for all working people aged 16 and over, whether you are currently employed or looking for work. To take advantage of it, you simply need to have had some professional experience, whether it comes from an internship, a sandwich course, a temporary assignment or a salaried contract. Each stage of your professional career is valued and contributes to the eligibility and accumulation of your CPF rights.

How does the CPF balance work?

How is the CPF funded? 

Every year, between January and June, your Personal Training Account is updated according to the length of time you have been working. Here are a few indications, although they do not cover all situations, of the amounts to which different statuses may be entitled:

  • Full-time or part-time: up to €500/year, to a maximum of €5,000.
  • Low-skilled employees or employees with an employment obligation: up to €800/year and up to a maximum of €8,000.

Note that some companies may choose to top up your CPF balance. What's more, these training funds are tax-free .

How can I top up my CPF if I don't have enough rights?

Si votre CPF ne couvre pas l'intégralité de vos frais de formation, d'autres solutions existent. Des entités telles que France Travail, votre région et Transition Pro peuvent venir compléter votre financement. Vous augmentez significativement vos chances d'obtenir des aides conséquentes de ces entités si vous utilisez votre CPF en complément. Informez toujours votre conseiller de votre solde CPF pour maximiser vos chances.

👉 At Jedha, we also offer the option of covering the remaining amount through self-financing (payment in one or more instalments) .

How long does it take to register for training with the CPF? 

The advantage of the CPF is its rapid funding process. However, to guarantee your place, don't forget to submit your application 11 days before the start of the course .
