Skills for all project promoters.

The aim is to train future young talents and offer them job opportunities through apprenticeship.

CAP and BAC PRO training courses which are now provided by about 10 teachers in the fields of metallurgy, welding and aerostructure assembly are completed by new Bac et Bac+2 training courses specialized in CND (Non destructive testing) and in Industrial Painting.

The whole project of «l’Industrie du futur» is implemented by the UIMM (Union of Metallurgies Industries) in partnership with the ALSTOM, DAHER and PYRÉNIA consortium. Concerning the pedagogical partners, PYRÉNIA benefits from the existing links with Jean Dupuy Vocational High School, the IUT of Tarbes (University Institutes of Technology) and the ENI of Tarbes (National Engineering School) and from a lasting partnership with industrial players involved in the economy of the Hautes Pyrénées (Alstom, Daher, AAA, ADB, Segnere, SCT, Boostech, Pall Exekia…).

These block-release training courses guarantee students full employment after completing school.
