AFNOR Competencies sees innovation as central to its training systems. Our team of trainers designs original digital or in-person educative tools: professional social media networks, e-learning, serious games, online trainee areas, performance tests, e-books, association games, puzzle and miming games, quiz boxes, mock tests, etc.
AFNOR Competencies offers recognition systems ranging from simple validation through to certification of application of new knowledge on site. AFNOR Competencies is the first training body to use CPF (personal training account) codes for its auditor and energy efficiency expert training programmes.
Longer training courses in partnership with prestigious higher education establishments and universities: Mines de Douai, ESQESE- Paris Descartes, KEDGE – leading to qualifications such as Master’s, RNCP, DU, BADGE and specialized Master’s.
Training programmes validated by verbal defence of a professional project and by an examination before a panel of experts leading to the award of a professional development certificate or individual certifications issued by independent certifying bodies.
Comprising a number of training modules, these courses are an opportunity to gain deeper insight into a subject area, technical field or entire area of expertise. This training can be followed in person or as a blended-learning scheme.
• “I followed a BIM (building information modelling) training course with my colleagues to consolidate our knowledge and keep us up to date on current trends and tools. Thanks to discussion sessions and study of some real-life situations, I came out of it confident about my company's strategic choices on internal development tools for real estate management. Various fun exercises [...] helped us put the theoretical side of the subject into practice.”
• “The benefits of my “quality auditor” training are numerous: sharing of good practices and appropriate behaviours, adoption of good habits and efficient methods, etc. On the practical side, performance of a fictitious audit is one of the great strengths of this training. It's an effective tool for preparing our audits in the best possible way. Whether you're a beginner or experienced, I recommend this training.”
