Vocational training

The course Lancement d’une entreprise, financed by the Ministère de l’Éducation et de l’Enseignement supérieur (MEES), leads to an Attestation of Vocational Specialization.

This course provides basic tools to:

  • develop plans to start a business
  • create a business plan
  • conduct a market analysis
  • understand notions of management

All centres that are members of Entrepreneuriat Québec have a pedagogical support structure that enables them to be leaders in business pre-startups and startups.
