The INSTN offers continuing education opportunities geared towards professionals who need to keep their knowledge or their expertise up to date or who wish to be learn about the latest developments in science and technology. The institute forms more than 8,000 trainees per year.
Continuing education offerings
Inter-enterprise training programmes
The institute offers a selection of nearly 200 trainings that are designed to meet the expectations of professionals, doctorates and post-docs. These programmes are based on a diverse set of topics : nuclear science and energies (including new energy technologies), nuclear science and technology, nuclear operation and maintenance, nuclear safety, radiation protection, radiation detection and measurement, nuclear technologies for health, micro- and nanotechnologies, etc.
These annual offerings are open to any Francophone audience. >> Detailed programmes in the French part of our website. A few are offered in English (see the list below).
Made-to-measure training programmes
Furthermore, the INSTN designs customised intra-enterprise training programmes. At the client’s specific request and under full client control, our programme managers analyse operational needs, define educational objectives and design made-to-measure training courses suited to specific categories of personnel. This ability to create content through the mobilisation of recognised, varied and complementary competencies enables us to offfer training of high quality within a flexible framework.
