Lifelong learning is related to the training process in areas of formal, non-formal and informal education, highlighting the importance of recognition and certification of the skills, knowledge and competences acquired by a person throughout his lifetime. International organizations as UNESCO have been promoting the learning to utilize the validation process and linking this process to a national qualification framework. This work presents the exploratory analysis for the construction of a proposal for a National Qualification Framework in Venezuela. For this, it was determined the occupation categories of the economically active population in Venezuela that could require validation or knowledge certification and their location in the country geography. It also was revised the institutional, normative and legal basis for the creation of a National Qualification Framework.
