The École de la Mécanique Dassault Aviation (EMDA) project initiated in the 2nd quarter of 2022 came to fruition on Monday April 17, 2023, in Argonay (France) with the arrival of the first session of 6 apprentices on professionalization contracts.
This is a specific, tailor-made training program designed by Dassault Aviation’s teams to meet its recruitment needs, and will take place 1 or 2 times a year. Lasting 6 months and alternating theoretical and practical courses, the training is provided by in-house trainers and partner organizations: AFPI-Etudoc and IMAA.
This training will lead to the acquisition of a Certificat de Qualification Professionnel (CQP) “Opérateur Régleur en Machine Outils à Commande Numérique”.
The added value of this school is to rapidly reinforce Dassault Aviation’s teams with training specific to its needs. The students come from a wide range of backgrounds and experience. The exchanges and cohesion within the group are good, with a positive state of mind.
With over 10,000 military and civil aircraft (including 2,500 Falcons) delivered in more than 90 countries over the last century, Dassault Aviation has built up expertise recognized worldwide in the design, development, sale and support of all types of aircraft, ranging from the Rafale fighter, to the high-end Falcon family of business jets, military drones and space systems.
In 2021, Dassault Aviation reported revenues of €7.2 billion. The company has 12,400 employees.
