The adaptability of Human Resources to the occupations of today and tomorrow is a major challenge for Cofely Endel. In that sense, professional training is an essential lever to enable all of our employees to acquire and develop skills and advance their careers.

We invest in a wide range of training to ensure everyone is employable according to their individual needs: technical training, safety, general skills, management, personal development and professional skills.

Furthermore, our apprenticeship tax policy lets us develop the partnerships we want with schools related to our professional branch and our occupations.




Our Institute brings together a group of applied training courses leading to professional qualifications and advanced training in “occupational skills” and techniques.

These courses are certified in order to control the quality, whether they are given internally or externally.
