Summer intensive courses are the best way to get you up to speed!

Each session lasts two weeks, from Monday to Friday from 09:00 to 11:30 am.


In order to optimize your progress, Supercomm evaluates your level through a written test before the beginning of each session and then places you in an appropriate group.

As a result, there are no prerequisites required.


On the first day of class, you will receive:

  • A Supercomm book adapted to your level
  • An Altaïr license, our E-learning platform
