Whilst How to fix caption in moderncv? tells us how to get around using the floating environment, for a range of reasons I am particularly interested in integrating the respective code/class for the floating environments into moderncv.

  • So, where do I find this code?
  • And how do I include it in the moderncv document?

    Please try to add a minimal working example (MWE). – Sebastiano Mar 12 '17 at 20:26

    Why would you want a float in a CV? – cfr Mar 13 '17 at 1:36

The definition of floating environments figure and table can for example be found in document class article and other files, loaded from within article.

You can add the code to the preamble of your cv, for example like this:

\documentclass[11pt,a4paper,sans]{moderncv}

% moderncv themes
\moderncvstyle{classic} % casual, classic, banking, oldstyle and fancy
\moderncvcolor{blue} 
%\renewcommand{\familydefault}{\sfdefault} % \rmdefault
%\nopagenumbers{} 

\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}

\usepackage[scale=0.75]{geometry}
%\setlength{\hintscolumnwidth}{3cm} 
%\settowidth{\hintscolumnwidth}{Jun-Sep, 2011} 
%\setlength{\makecvtitlenamewidth}{10cm} % for the 'classic' style

But I think you should better use package komacv. It is based on class scrarticle which has included floats ...
