Students must successfully (i.e. with positive scores) complete general education subjects, compulsory vocational modules, and the open part of the curriculum. They must also complete extracurricular activities, practical on-the-job training and a vocational matura.
The vocational matura comprises a compulsory section (written and oral examination in Slovene and dental prosthetics) and an elective section (written and oral examination in a foreign language or mathematics, and practical prosthetics with an oral presentation).
Students' vocational abilities and skills and the fulfilment of conditions to obtain credits in accordance with the education programme are established through testing and assessment. Assessment also takes into account non-formally acquired knowledge, which must be adequately demonstrated. Students are assessed using scores from 5 (excellent) to 1 (inadequate).
