Training Catalog

Here you will find our ‘off-the-shelf’ training catalogue.

Some of these courses will help you master specific skills such as courses focused on software functionnalities, or specific others can be combined in order to compose a real modular training scenario that allow you to smoothly gain confidence and expertise.

All our training courses can be provided as on-site courses, i.e. for a particular person, team or organization: we can adapt to your constraints and objectives and design tailor-made courses.

Many of the training courses here described are also offered as public attendance sessions, meaning that you can individually register for a shourt courses scheduled and held in our Training Center or online.

Although the information available for each of these training courses tends to be exhaustive, if you have questions or doubts about the level or prerequisites to attend a session, we will be happy to guide you : do not hesitate to consult us to design together the best options for your training project

NB: Our public attendance sessions are held for the time being online (virtual classrooms). Whilst registering to these sessions, you can benefit from our dedicated digital training platform (LMS): a space where you learn all there is to know about the training course scheduled, access educational material, attend sessions, discuss with other attendees and sometimes assess your skills.
