Higher level training cycles
Higher level training cycles (CFGS) are professionalized studies that are part of higher education and prepare students for qualified activity in a professional field.
These courses have a duration of 2000 hours (in two academic years) and are grouped into professional families.
The qualification obtained at the end of a higher level training cycle is that of a higher technician of the corresponding professional profile, which allows the student to access the job market and university studies.
What do I need to access?
People who meet any of the following requirements have direct access to the cycle:
