The entire training takes place in our 3 technical workshops dedicated to the electrical trades on a total surface of 300m².

A work plan per trainee on a grid to learn the basics of positioning and fixing conduits and equipment, connecting conductors to equipment and protective devices.

12 three-dimensional work spaces are available to learners to finalize the installation and connection in a real tertiary site situation.

9 wiring cabinets are available for the industrial electricity part. Hand and power tools are available.

A computer room equipped with 14 PCs is available for technological research.

A "classic" classroom is also used when necessary.

Evaluation methods

Learning is measured throughout the course and a skills log is written.

Satisfaction is assessed at the end of the course.

  • Two vocational tests and one in-course test (CCF) One-off written tests in the general, scientific and technical fields.
  • Two professional tests:
    - An activity report presenting the company and any studies carried out during the first year
    - A project: Choice of a technical study with the company and approval by an inter-academic validation committee (carrying out this study in the company with a file and oral presentation)
  • Assessment during training (CCF) :
  • English
  • Expression and communication
  • Site organization
  • 3 project reviews

Each block of competence is certifying and gives rise to an evaluation and validation. Obtaining all the blocks allows you to obtain the Brevet de Technicien Supérieur.
