APPLICATION PROCESS

We value your application and assure you that it will be given careful consideration based on the information you provide.

By submitting your application, you agree to provide accurate and up-to-date information. Our teams will review this information to determine your eligibility for one of our apprenticeships. Please note that the review of your application does not imply any guarantee of its validity or your enrollment in one of our apprenticeship programs. You must await our final confirmation. Any false declarations or failure to submit required documents may result in exclusion from the process, without compensation. OpenClassrooms reserves the right to take appropriate action to protect its rights.

We want to inform you that at the time of your application, there may not be any employers with open apprenticeship positions that match your profile. Submitting your application does not guarantee that you will be connected with one of our partner employers or be hired by any company. For this reason, OpenClassrooms cannot be held responsible for any resulting compensation or damages.

However, if you choose to be part of our talent marketplace and accept the associated terms and conditions, we will include your profile, which will enhance your visibility with our employers. These employers may contact you directly if you meet their requirements, but success is not guaranteed. When an employer expresses interest in your profile, they will coordinate with you to schedule an interview. If both parties agree that you’re a great fit for the role, the employer will notify us, and we will then reach out to us to initiate the enrollment process. Don’t worry, this process is straightforward and involves reviewing a few documents before activating your account on our learning platform.

Please be aware that you are applying for an apprenticeship training program with the opportunity to work alongside one of our employer partners. If hired as an apprentice, you will receive complimentary enrollment in OpenClassrooms' online training program and a salary (or hourly wages, as applicable) from the employer. We want to clarify that although OpenClassrooms offers other types of non-apprenticeship training programs for a fee, this application process does not involve any payment for training.
