What they say about our school

I am extremely happy with this training. Arrived just after getting my bachelor degree, without having programmed before, the training at Creajeux allowed me to learn everything I needed for my job. Being able to find a job easily and knowing that my superiors were proud of me from the beginning make me say that there is nothing to change in the cursus.

The training at Creajeux is very serious, and the basics of the profession are taught by very interesting and competent teachers. This training was really useful, and those years spent in Creajeux were the best years of my life, either on a personal or educational level. This school deserves its excellent reputation. I would redo this choice without hesitating .
