Why should you have your professional qualifications officially recognised?

A profession is referred to as « regulated » when it is necessary to hold a specific diploma, have passed certain exams, obtained a particular authorisation or be registered with a professional body, in order to exercise it.

It is mandatory to have your professional qualifications officially recognised if you are intending to work in another European Union country in which your profession is regulated. This means that your training and/or your professional experience is officially recognised by the country you will be working in. (suite…)
