Distance learning courses - Approval of distance learning courses that are not exclusively for recreational/entertainment purposes.

Service Description

All distance learning courses must be approved by the state before they can be offered.

Prior to approval, distance learning courses are reviewed to determine whether the stated course objective can be achieved with the distance learning course. Vocational distance learning courses must, in terms of their content, duration or objective and the way in which they are carried out, comply with the objectives of vocational education and training as defined in the Vocational Training Act or other legal provisions on vocational education and training. Both the technical side and the didactic access are assessed. In addition, advertising and information, agency activities, and contract design must meet the requirements of the Distance Learning Protection Act.
Approved distance learning courses receive an approval seal with an approval number. As the organizer, you must list this approval number in the information material as a verifiable reference to the state approval granted.
