The courses take place in Morez, in a spectacle-making workshop with all the equipment for making prototype frames and all the machines and raw materials required (metal, acetate, wood, horn) for creating, making or modifying a frame.

Each trainee enjoys a close relationship, so as to benefit from personalised monitoring appropriate for their own level of skills.

Located in France, in the cradle of spectacle-making in Morez, the school also provides its trainees with opportunities to tour the eyeglass production units in the area (bar turning plant, surface treatment, acetate cutting etc.) in parallel with the course itself.
