a recognised electrician's qualification that you can get in later life is actually the CAP, BEP... etc. You'll be in a classroom with lots of teenagers, but there's no law to stop anyone from going back to school or getting any kind of academic qualification regardless of age.

Hi snowman, your question prompted me to have a look around the web and surprisingly, aside from the kind of technical diplomas (e.g. CAP, BEP, BAC PRO, etc.) obtained at school, there doesn't seem to be a recognised electrician's qualification that I can see that one can obtain in later life - in Switzerland, Canada and Belgium, yes, but France, no - it's a little odd..

All I found was this organisation which proposes distance learning to become an electrician but it simply awards their own course diploma: http://www.cnfdi.com/ 

I'd be interested to hear from anyone who can tell us more...
