12 November 2020 – Alstom's training centre in France, which groups together the training activities carried out by Alstom's teams at the sites of Valenciennes and Saint-Ouen, has now been Qualiopi certified by AFNOR. Alstom is the first actor in the rail sector to obtain this certification.

The Qualiopi certification confirms the quality of Alstom's training processes. It covers the whole catalogue, i.e. some forty training courses given by 12 permanent trainers and approximately fifty people working on an occasional basis. The catalogue includes product training such as train driving and maintenance, training in special processes such as welding, painting and cabling, as well as training in industrial culture such as quality and safety.

"The Qualiopi certification attests to the pedagogical expertise and the quality of our training activities. We are the first railway company to be certified and recognised as a training professional. This is proof of our ability to contribute to developing skills, to be a training stakeholder in the regional and national economic context, and to propose a comprehensive offer that also enables our customers to claim financial support from the State, the Regions or even the OPCOs, the official bodies responsible for supporting vocational training," explains Jean-Baptiste Eyméoud, President of Alstom in France.

The training courses are primarily aimed at customers, but also at service providers and subcontractors. They can be given on our sites as well as on customer sites. Many training courses, such as those for driving, welding or painting, draw on the use of virtual reality simulators to encourage learning. In 2020, in spite of the COVID-19 epidemic, 800 people have already been trained by Alstom's training centre in France. Obtaining Qualiopi certification should attract additional trainees, particularly from our transport operator customers.

This certification is granted for a period of 4 years. It commits Alstom to being a training stakeholder and to complying with professional training requirements.
