Founded in 1992, the CNFDI (Centre National Privé de Formation à Distance) has already trained more than 100,000 students across more than 100 countries.

The 200 programmes offered by the CNFDI are all designed to be taught remotely, thus allowing students to study throughout the year, at their own pace and in a progressive and personalised manner. 26 disciplines are on offer.

CNFDI students are given close educational supervision by teachers with both professional experience and distance-teaching skills. The CNFDI attaches great importance to developing students’ future career prospects, offering more than 4000 internship contracts. The institution’s objective? To meet the needs of those wishing to undertake initial career training, undergo a career change or successfully climb the career ladder.

The CNFDI combines remote learning with hands-on practical sessions organised by the Centre in collaboration with expert professionals in the student’s chosen discipline.
