OPCO FIFPL Public funding - OPCO (Opérateurs de Compétences)

OPCOs are bodies responsible for collecting contributions from companies in the field of vocational training. They play an essential role in financing employee training. If you are currently employed, your company can contribute to the financing of your training by paying contributions to the OPCO corresponding to your sector of activity. The OPCO can then cover all or part of the cost of your training.

To benefit from this financing, you need to contact your human resources department or your employer to find out about the procedures to follow with the OPCO of your professional branch.

Public funding - FIFPL (Fonds Interprofessionnel de Formation des Professions Libérales) :

FIFPL is an organization specifically dedicated to the liberal professions. If you work in a liberal profession (e.g. doctor, lawyer, consultant), FIFPL can help you finance your professional training. It can cover part of your training costs.

To benefit from this funding, you must be affiliated to FIFPL as a self-employed professional, and comply with FIFPL's specific funding application criteria and procedures. Contact FIFPL for detailed information on how to apply for funding.

Public funding - AIRE (Aide individuelle à la Reprise ou à la Création d'Entreprise) :

AIRE is a financial aid scheme for jobseekers wishing to set up or take over a business. If you have an entrepreneurial project and are unemployed, AIRE can provide you with financial support to make your project a reality.

Eligibility conditions and application procedures may vary from region to region, as the AIRE is often managed by local authorities. To find out more about AIRE and how to benefit from its financing, you can contact your local Mission Locale, Pôle Emploi or the relevant regional services.

In summary, there are various sources of funding for learners, including Pôle Emploi, Missions Locales, OPCO (if you're employed), FIFPL (if you're a self-employed professional), and AIRE (if you have an entrepreneurial project). Each of these funding sources has its own eligibility criteria and application procedures, so be sure to check the details specific to your situation and region.
