Changes in ONA exams (update)

At the moment, it takes a longer before you can take the final interview for Orientation on the Dutch labour market (ONA).

New rules

As from 1 May the rules for the Orientation on the Dutch Labour Market exam will be changed.

2 ways to take the ONA exam

When the law has been changed, you can pass your ONA exam in 2 different ways:

  1. Portfolio and 64 hours of ONA course at a Blik op Werk organization
  2. Portfolio and final interview
  3. Do you already have a job? If so, you may not have to take the ONA exam at all. This is not certain yet.
