Discover training courses created to meet the needs of the industry. Give meaning to your future career and become a member of the OSV ACADEMY.


Over the course of 6 months, you will develop specialized skills while in the Alps, the heart of the European Outdoor Industry.

Since this spectacular region is highly prized by both the outdoor sports enthusiasts and the headquarters of world-renowned outdoor sports companies, you will be in the right place to expand your network.

Once courses finish, you will have the opportunity to apply your skills by completing a 6-month internship in an outdoor sports company.
