HEFAÏS, Haute École de Formation Soudage, is a unique welding school in France, designed by and for industrial businesses as a response to the lack of highly qualified welders that are needed to work on major current and future industrial projects.

This high-end industrial school was founded by 4 leading industrialists located in the Cotentin (Normandy) : EDF, Naval Group, Orano and CMN - with the ambition to train the best welders in France for both the nuclear and naval industries.

Supported by several local institutional partners, HEFAÏS offers modern innovative training methods and environments that allow the welders to learn or improve their skills in real-life conditions.

HEFAÏS offers training of excellence to metalworking industry employees as well as to jobseekers who are interested in metalworking, whether they are beginners or experienced workers, men and women, from Normandy or elsewhere.
