Executive Education - Marine Renewable Energies

This training provision is intended to give companies and their teams the key to understanding the overall environment of Marine Renewable Energies and how to fit into the emerging MRE market. They will have a comprehensive overview, understand concepts and vocabulary, be able to position the different actors, and finally to identify and understand the implications of their products on the value chain and consider their potential integration into technological components. Centrale Nantes and the University of Nantes have created 22 Executive Education modules within the WEAMEC (West Atlantic Marine Energy Community) framework, dealing exclusively with the growing MRE (Marine Renewable Energies) sector.

22 Training Modules - intra and/or inter-company

One- to three-day modules put together and delivered by a teaching team composed of academics (University of Nantes, Centrale Nantes, IFSTARR, Ecole Nationale Supérieure Maritime) and industry professionals (e.g. IDEOL, RTE, ACCOAST, INNOSEA).

The modules have been tailored to meet two objectives: firstly, to expand company activity or help companies to enter new markets and secondly, to develop the trainees' skills and employability.

Core track leading to "MRE technical advisor"

The program training is composed of a “Core” track leading to the “MRE technical advisor” certificate and expert module.

This track provides a comprehensive overview within a four-month period. On completion of this course, the trainee will be able to provide technical support to operational teams and contribute to the development of technical skills. These modules, available without prerequisites, foster good cross-functional knowledge for experts, managers and policy makers alike.

11 'Expert' modules

The “Expert” modules require specific prerequisites for each module (see descriptive pages). They are aimed in particular at professionals who want to develop their specialized skills in the MRE field.
