Compte Personnel de Formation (CPF)

Vous pouvez utiliser votre CPF pour financer une formation à la langue française à l'Alliance Française de Paris. Retrouvez les informations en suivant ce lien : CPF à l'Alliance Française de Paris. 


DAEFLE, DAMOCE and DPFAP cannot be funded by CPF as well.

We hope the situation will change soon and invite you to browse our website on a regular basis.

The CPF requires certification at the end of the course in order to be validated.

Thus, the Alliance Française de Paris offered a set of courses (4 weeks minimum) + an exam (TEF, DELF or DALF) that could be financed by the CPF.

If you wish to finance a course that costs more than your CPF account, you must fund your CPF account with your personal funds directly on MonCompteFormation.

The Alliance Française de Paris will soon propose a catalog of courses and training available for CPF financing.

Professional training for teachers (DAEFLE, DPAFP...) and executives (DAMOCE) cannot be financed by the CPF.

You can contact our Customer Service for more information.

Other Questions
