According to article 15 Doctorate Regulations VU University Amsterdam 2015 the PhD candidate shall devote at least 30 EC (840 hours) to training.
Please be aware: Without having devoted these 30 EC you will not be admitted to the PhD ceremony, even when the thesis committee has submitted a positive advice on your dissertation.
Once the supervisor has approved the dissertation, the PhD candidate shall submit a request to the supervisor and counselor of the research institute (see: here) to determine whether all training requirements have been met as agreed in the Training and Supervision Plan. If so, a certificate will be drawn up and awarded to the PhD candidate (article 16).
I guess you already know the PhD_Portal?
