Applying for vocational training support from ADEM

Vocational training is an opportunity to acquire or deepen job related skills, whether in the profession practised until now or in a completely different sector.

The employment fund can co-finance the participation in such a training.

The application for vocational training is made online via without authentication, i.e. without the need for a LuxTrust product or an electronic identity card (eID). Applicants must, however, have an access code which will have been provided by ADEM in advance.

Who is concerned

Jobseekers who are registered with ADEM, whether on benefit or not, and who wish to follow a vocational training course may, under certain conditions, receive vocational training support.

Note: in some cases, jobseekers must not be on benefit.

This support is in the form of a partial reimbursement of training costs.

Preliminary steps

How to obtain an access code

Jobseekers who wish to apply for vocational training support must talk to their ADEM counsellor during one of their follow-up appointments. This request must be made at least 8 weeks before the start of the training.

If the ADEM counsellor gives a favourable opinion, jobseekers receive an access code that allows them to access the online application for vocational training on

The access code is strictly personal and must not be passed on to others.


The access code is valid for 2 months. The online application must therefore be made before the code expires


Vocational training support is in the form of a partial reimbursement of training costs. This presupposes that jobseekers have to pre-finance the total cost of the training.

Partial reimbursement of training costs

Jobseekers may apply to ADEM for partial reimbursement of training costs:

  • at the end of the vocational training; and
