There are several qualification paths that, throughout life, enable the obtainment of a school certification at basic level (4th, 6th or 9th year of schooling) or at upper-secondary level (12th year of schooling) and/or a professional certification, such as Recognition, Validation and Certification of Competences (RVCC), Adult Education and Training Courses (AET), Certified Modular Training (CMT) or Upper-Secondary Education Completion Paths (DL No. 357/2007). It is also possible to obtain a qualification through assessment by an Assessment and Certification Commission (ACC) or the recognition of foreign titles.
