(Centre for advanced IT Studies)
Since being created in 1958, two basic principles have determined CESI’s orientations and activities in the field of occupational training:
- Developing corporate performance by training, qualification, evolution and promotion of company employees.
- Bringing out the best qualities in people through training and giving substance to the notion of "training throughout life".
