You can find an exemple on the site of the FFVL :

Citation of the chart of the french federation of paragliding (FFVL) : "Before starting the activity, the student of the school has to have a medical certificat which states there are no medical indications that could prevent him from practicing paragliding. This certificat has to be written in french and be delivered by a doctor. The school has the obligation to verify this document."

After verification, the student keeps the certificat. It stays valid for 3 years if you’re under 40 years old or 2 years if you are 40 already. Each year you take a licence you bring back the certificat until it is no longer valid. Then you should get a new one.
