Orientation on the Dutch Labour Market (ONA)

Note: If you have worked as a salaried employee for 48 hours a week for at least six months in the past 12 months, you may apply for an exemption for this exam.

The Orientation on the Dutch Labour Market (ONA) exam is about working and identifying opportunities on the Dutch labour market. This is done by compiling a portfolio.

In addition to the portfolio, the exam consists of a choice of two components:

A final interview based on your portfolio

64 hours of ONA courses

If you follow at least 64 hours of official ONA courses, resulting in a complete portfolio, you are exempted from the interview.
