Last update

Training organisations that wish to obtain an approval of a continuing education course in the healthcare sector must apply to the Ministry of Health and Social Security (Ministère de la Santé et de la Sécurité sociale) to be allowed to provide said training course.

Who is concerned?

Each training organisation can apply for an approval of their continuing education course in the healthcare sector.


Preliminary steps

You will only be able to access the online application form if your business eSpace on has been certified by the Ministry of Health and Social Security.

To have the business eSpace certified, it is necessary to attach a ministerial authorisation to operate as a training organisation.

How to proceed

Filing the application

You can file the application with the Ministry of Health and Social Security either:

  • via your business eSpace on the platform with authentication using a LuxTrust product (e.g. Token, Smartcard or Signing stick) or an electronic identity card (eID); or
  • by post using the relevant form that can be downloaded under 'Online services and forms' below.

You must provide the following information on your application:

  • the name of the company (organising the training courses);
  • phone number and email address of the person responsible;
  • the name of the training course;
  • the training method (theoretical, practical or mixed) and purpose of the course (update of knowledge and skills, adaptation to new requirements);
  • the targeted sector;
  • the number of training sessions;
  • the date and effective duration of the course.

You must also specify the number of trainers and provide their contact details.

At the end, you must check the data and confirm your input.

Supporting documents

You must provide a description of the course/programme together with the duly completed and signed application form.


The decision to grant the approval or not will be communicated to the applicant by post.


The approval is valid only for the course specified in the application.


You can lodge an appeal against a decision of refusal with the administrative tribunal within 3 months of being notified of the decision.
