The GRETA of Creation, Design and Fine Crafts


The GRETA of Creation, Design and Fine Crafts is a continuing education center, created by the French Ministry of Education on 1st January 2011 from the combination of three GRETA (Arts appliqués, Mode and Réseau Graphique), which offers training programs for adults :
Day or evening classes, full- or part-time
Professionalizing degree courses
Tailor-made, in-house or in the training centre

The GRETA CDMA training can benefit, without discrimination, all employees (whether you report to public – private employers), job seekers, but also anyone who wishes to train individually.

The GRETA CDMA ensures that the accessibility level of its various training locations is maintained.
We support, through a disability coordinator, requests for Specific Punctual Services. Thus, from the positioning, the handicap situation is taken into consideration.
