OUR METHODS AND LEARNING TOOLS

The training sessions are lead by full time professional tutors who use dedicated learning techniques.

From the moment you enrol

At the time of enrolling into a training session, our managers check the candidate’s knowledge to create coherent trainees groups and to advise on the right learning sessions.

The training

Within the frame of on site training, the instructors adapt their program and facilitate specific training and activities, adapted to the client’s requirements. Training support is provided to help following the session.

After the training session

Trainees are given an evaluation on the whole session they attended.
Our instructors share their experiences for continuous quality improvement.
