Training, an asset for the performance of Afnic and its employees

 

Afnic considers training to be a major focus for its policy of human resource management.

  • Each year Afnic spends more than 3% of its payroll to finance continuing vocational training.

 

Afnic applies an ambitious training policy in line with its strategy, with developments in domain name services and with technology. The policy is also designed to develop the skills of Afnic employees and promote their employability.

 

Lifelong career training

Every Afnic employee is given personal guidance, enabling them to develop their skills according to their duties and career goals. Afnic provides diversified training, whether in terms of content (information systems, administration, sales, management, office automation, languages, personal development, and security) and in the form (conventional short cycles, resulting in certification or a diploma, professional training period, skills assessment).

 

Skills sharing initiatives

In parallel, Afnic encourages the acquisition and dissemination of new skills by organizing several training / in-house information sessions each year, in addition to the opportunities provided to take part in national and international seminars and conferences attended by Internet experts.

 

Training to learn about our business lines

Afnic promotes cooperative training, and facilitates the discovery of its business lines, through internships (in engineering schools), professional training contracts, or apprenticeships.
