Project Description

What is a Training Center?

It is a place where you will find your formula for success; the one that is best suited to train or reorient you professionally, help you prepare for a further course of study or for a competitive exam.
Available options include apprenticeship and vocational training contracts, short or extended training courses (alternating with coursework or full-time), transitional classes, and classes that prepare students for competitive exams.

Each course combines elements to create the plan of study that is best suited to your needs.
In the past few years, the Fénelon Notre Dame Training Center has successfully positioned itself as the gold standard for careers in social services and in the paramedical field. In 2018, the Training Center added training options in other growth sectors : Refrigeration, household electricity, information technology, workplace safety, and the Certificate of Competency to Lead Youth Groups (BAFA).

Once enrolled in the Training Centre, students can head for the Office of Student Life (BDE) to enjoy student-friendly facilities, group activities, projects, cultural outings, events, and professional networking.
Our student residence, the Maison de l’Etoile located in Saint-Xandre, is reserved for middle school, high school, and post-secondary school students. Each week, it opens its doors to students as early as Sunday evening.
