Ongoing Training Programs

Ongoing training at the Emile Cohl School

The Emile Cohl School offers a variety of ongoing training via seminars or in short-term or long-term training programs.


Individual Entitlement to Training – DIF

Within the framework of ongoing training, the DIF (Individual Entitlement to Training) enables any salaried employee to have 150 hours of training annually, which is cumulative over a six-year period and capped at 120 hours. The DIF enables access to training and is designed to acquire knowledge or to perfect one’s skills. This training is carried out during working time and requires the employer’s consent. Emile Cohl’s seminars and evening art classes are eligible for the DIF.  For instance, jobseekers, thanks to DIF’s transferability, may use their acquired training credits for a training seminar or they may undertake a VAE (qualifications based on work experience).
