Organization and teaching methods


You must be at least 15 years old to enter pre-apprenticeship training. A training consultant is available for any information or registration request.

To be successful in this pre-apprenticeship year, candidates must have a sufficient grade point average.


Pre-apprenticeship starts at the beginning of August and the duration of the pre-apprenticeship is one school year (36 weeks divided into 4 terms).


Our pedagogy is characterized by a regular follow-up of the students. Pre-apprenticeship classes are practice-oriented. The goal for the student is to become quickly operational.

Theory and exercises are taught in class and supplemented by homework. Homework correction, revisions and a progress check are put in place to evaluate the student. Regular written assignments require the student to study and keep abreast of program progress. In addition, revision tests are organized at the end of each term to validate the student’s learning.
