There are group appartments on the premises of the CFL with a maximum of six beds per room available for all students. Every apprentice is free to use this offer. Moreover, the apprentices get nutrition on all 7 days per week. During the week, the cooking staff of the CFL prepares the food, at the weekend the apprentices are requested to prepare meals themselves using alimentation provided by the center.
We train in French and for the most part with materials from Switzerland. We have several class rooms and for some purposes the apprentices have even laptops at their disposition. Moreover, the CFL disposes of an internal IT-system, which allows every apprentice to access all learning stuff with a mobile phone without need to be connected to the Internet. In addition to the profession specific lessons, the apprentices are educated in biblical-ethical subjects as well as in English, IT, finance and health.
At the end of successfully finished training of 3 to 4 years, every apprentice receives a diploma in the course of a solemn ceremony. The diploma is a proof for the acquired knowledge and skills and contains a final performance evaluation.
