Creating a Professional Degree

Thanks to experimental sessions testing the CBPS professional certification, the GPFPS has been able to file an application for registration with the RNCP (Répertoire National des Certifications Professionnelles) in May 2019, with a view to securing and registering the Professional Degree for Selective Perfumery Beauty Advisors.

Next step: Quality Certification, mandatory from January 2021, based on an evaluation of the programme around 7 criteria and 32 indicators.
