Throughout the year’s training, participants benefit from the skills of researchers from the Industrial Environmental Engineering Laboratory at IMT Mines Alès and members of the teaching team, who are mainly industry specialists.

Organization and the program


The twelve-month alternating curriculum, from September to September, is organized as follows:

  • a basic module of general and applied education (600 hours), over a first period (from September to the end of February), devoted to the analysis and quantification of risks as well as to the regulatory framework of for industrial safety;
