In the beginning of your studies, prior skills and competences you have acquired are recognized. You will plan with your teacher how to gain skills that are still missing, in order to obtain the qualification you are interested in. You can acquire the missing skills and competences either at school or at work, usually as a combination of both. Depending on your previously acquired skills, you will study just a module, or some modules, or a whole qualification.

Study times vary, depending on how many skills and competences you need to study for. Qualifications are composed of both compulsory and optional modules. You demonstrate your skills in skills demonstrations, taking place in a work place in a real life working situation.
