Testimonials from graduates
“Sogea-Satom has chosen to train young people and employ them on its projects in Africa. We’re really lucky to have this opportunity to pursue training that leads to employment.”
Pierre, professional licence (fleet and equipment), 2IE

“Three months at UCAC-Icam (which used to be ISTAC), three months at Sogea-Satom, on a work-training rotation for three years... Following my training and thanks to my practical experience with Sogea-Satom in Cameroon, I quickly become operational. I was hired as an Equipment Engineer in Niger.”
