VR QUALITY S.a.s. provides a series of courses, individual or for groups of participants, on automotive themes. A few days before the beginning of the course, the file of the course is sent to the customer to be printed and distributed to the participants. Courses can be done in presence or remotely. The company is asked to make available a room of suitable size for the number of participants, equipped with a video projector. Each course ends with a written exam lasting about half an hour. If passed (min. 80% correct answers), the exam leads to the issue of a personal certificate of competence.
