Depending on your level of training contributions, these training courses can be partially or totally reimbursed by the organisations that you pay your contributions to. The ProTechnologies solution means that you will always be able to find the most appropriate training session in terms of location and dates.  

This constitutes a major advantage for you compared to other operators who only offer sessions organised far from where you are located. With ProTechnologies, you will benefit from a pool of thirty or so professional training staff and will have access to more than 120 sessions per year. All the programmes we offer are approved by the Ministry of Transport.

The initial training course is one of the pre-requisites for applying to become a vehicle inspector. This training module entails 245 hours of theory in a training centre and 70 hours of practical training in a specialised centre.

TRAIN TO BECOME A MANAGER AT A PV CENTRE

This training course is a pre-requisite for operators of PV inspection centres who do not hold the initial vehicle inspector training qualification. Candidates must be able to justify a minimum of 35 hours training. A 14-hour top-up qualification must be performed every 5 years.

TOP-UP TRAINING FOR PV INSPECTORS

20-hour top-up training courses for PV inspectors are organised all over France and the French Overseas Departments and Territories If you are able to group together with other inspectors, we can organise special training courses for a minimum of 10 inspectors whenever and wherever is most convenient for you.

REFRESHER COURSES FOR INSPECTORS

his training course is necessary for PV inspectors that have not complied with the necessary criteria for the continued validation of their qualification. As defined in the ministerial ruling of 18/06/1991, the refresher course must entail at least 35 hours of training and must be completed at the latest on the 30 March of the current year. Furthermore, this condition also applies to inspectors who have not been professionally active for a period of 12 months.

1-DAY ELECTRICAL ACCREDITATION TRAINING

Learn about the scope of electrical risks within the framework of electrical or non-electrical operations in order to ensure that you avoid all types of accident likely to be encountered during operations on vehicles or other motorised equipment: thermal, electric or hybrid. This qualification is necessary to be able to perform vehicle inspections on electric and hybrid vehicles.
