Victim of its success, the ECM-A training center moves and expands

Created in 2023, the center directed by Elisa Bordarier now welcomes around fifty students. Midi Libre – STEPHANE BARBIER

As of March 3, it is at 4, rue Maurice-Bourdet in Alès that director Elisa Bordarier  sets up its apprentice training center (CFA) in the field of aesthetics and hairdressing.

"Since 2023, this has been developing well. There are around fifty students today, we assume double next year and triple later." And since Elisa Bordarier, brand designer by trade or in other words brand creator, is not the type to stop halfway, she is expanding and moving her training center to the second floor of the Atalante building in Alès.

From CAP to BTS

Pre-registrations have been open on the site since February 15 for a start in September. Two open days will take place on Wednesday March 20 and Saturday March 23 (without appointment).

That's six years of study in the fields of hairdressing and aesthetics. A craft profession whose classes will be limited to a maximum of 12 people in order to ensure quality teaching representing a profound life change for work-study students.
"It’is a course that takes you from school status to employee status with five weeks of paid leave, 35 hours of work per week and taking on new responsibilities"& nbsp;emphasizes Elisa Bordarier.
