You shall apply for the intermediation of a requalification course at the Labour Office (https://www.uradprace.cz/)– “Interest in the chosen requalification of the applicant for employment – applicant for employment” (form)

Payment for the expenses of the requalification:
The Labour Office shall pay for the expenses of requalification (course fee) for an applicant or an applicant for employment if the Labour Office had recommended the person for the requalification and concludes a written agreement on requalification with him/her prior to the commencement of the requalification course.

If the applicant or the person interested in requalification does not complete the requalification for serious reasons or refuses to commence suitable employment corresponding to the newly acquired qualification, there is an obligation in the agreement on requalification that such a person shall pay the expenses for the requalification in full. There is no legal entitlement to the payment of expenses of the requalification and the expenses related to the requalification.
