Support for obtaining qualifications enables an employed person to have costs related to obtaining evidence of formal qualifications compensated. The costs are compensated if you have passed the examination in the three-year period prior to the exam and:
- you are currently working on the basis of an employment contract or a contract under the law of obligations or you are in public service;
- you have completed respective labour market training arranged by the Unemployment Insurance Fund or
- you have completed the training, for which your employer has obtained a training grant from the Unemployment Insurance Fund.
We will compensate costs related to obtaining a qualification (e.g. a vocational or competence certificate) to the value of up to 500 euros over three years.
Costs related to obtaining a qualification will be compensated on the basis of an application, expense receipts and evidence of passing the exam. You can submit the documents via the Unemployment Insurance Fund self-service portal (e-töötukassa), by e-mail or mail or at one of our offices.
The labour market service is co-financed by the European Social Fund.
