Price of courses

  • The price of each course depends upon the subject and duration. The price is specified on the description sheet for each course.  The Institut is subject to VAT.


  • They are communicated to the trainees at least 2 weeks before the beginning of the course.
    A day course includes 7 hours of teaching.
    Classes are given in sessions of three and a half hours, with a break of fifteen minutes in the middle of the morning and afternoon.
    A lab session is usually a half-day block without interruption


  • The cost of lunch is included in the price of the training.
    For courses held in Palaiseau or Saint-Etienne, lunch is in the administrative restaurant, which is in the immediate vicinity of the classroom.


  • All necessary documentation (photocopies of presentations, bibliography of books or reference articles, USB keys, etc.) is given to each trainee at the beginning or during the course.

Evaluation of courses

  • At the end of each course, a de-brief is organized and a questionnaire is given to each participant so that they can express their impressions. It is also an opportunity to make additional suggestions.
    This approach allows us to ensure trainees are satisfied with the content and pedagogical quality of the lessons and to make the necessary improvements.
