Do you have a question?

Face-to-face or remote?

We made the choice of distance learning! Why? Because we believe in an inclusive format, where everyone, no matter where they come from, can fully participate. Our distance approach promotes the diversity of participants and allows us to offer training rich in interactions and practical cases. Are you worried about losing the human connection? We thought of everything! We organize one-on-one sessions between peers and even face-to-face afterworks.

How do I register?

Are the courses certifying?

Absolutely! Big Bloom Academy is a Qualiopi certified training organization. At the end of each session, you will have the opportunity to support your work in front of a jury. Once successful, we will issue you with the Big Bloom Academy certification.

Are the courses at fixed times?

Yes. All of our training sessions take place live on Zoom with our team of trainers. This means that they have fixed schedules to ensure an interactive and personalized learning experience.
