Can my husband apply to RAV

My partner arrived in Switzerland in January this year and we married shortly after. Due to that covid thing, his B Permit was delayed and hopefully he will get it sometime this month now that the biometrics are done. The thing is, he is having a hard time finding a job a he couldn't even start a German course because everything was shut.
I am not sure if he can apply for RAV? Is there any exception for foreign spouses of Swiss nationals? We live in Bern.

He has to have worked here for 12 months in the last 24 to be entitled to RAV.

Or worked in another EU country, then he may be able to get a few months here.

Or in the EU, no? Not sure if her HB is an EU person, though.

Getting biometrics done would suggest not.

Re: Can my husband apply to RAV

I don't think he can receive money, but I believe he can ask for help with things like formatting his CV, maybe language classes, etc. Also check with the municipality about German lessons. I've read on EF that some municipalities offer classes for reduced fees to try and help newcomers get integrated more quickly.

Finding a job as a trailing spouse without any local language skills can be a challenge but it's not impossible. It just takes time. In this current climate with so many companies using short work, I'm not sure whether many employers are hiring.

I guess even then he would need to have started receiving unemployment money in the EU country for a while before moving here:

Before leaving, you must:

have been registered as an unemployed jobseeker with the employment services in the country where you became unemployed for at least 4 weeks (exceptions can be made)
apply to your national employment services for a U2 form (formerly E 303) - an authorisation to export your unemployment benefits.
This authorisation is valid for one country only. If you wish to export your unemployment benefits to another country, you need to apply for another U2 form. Ask your jobcentre whether you have to go back home to apply for this new authorisation or whether you can do it remotely.

On arrival in the new country, you'll need to:

register as a jobseeker with the national employment services within 7 days from the date on which you ceased to be available to the employment services in the country you left
submit your U2 form (formerly E 303) when you register
agree to any checks made on unemployment benefit claimants in your new country as if you were receiving unemployment benefits there.
