The student must have attended the ONA course for at least 64 hours or have completed the final interview satisfactorily in order to be admitted to the exam. If the student has attended the full 64-hour course at Kreda, he/she does not need to have a final interview. In addition, students must create an ONA-portfolio and send it to DUO for approval.

During the lessons practical assignments are executed, that are required for filling in the results’ sheets in the students’ ONA-portfolio.
