Congratulations Nicolas Hochard!

Nicolas Hochard, diplôme d'Ingénieur Systèmes Électriques EPRM – Électronique de Puissance Réseaux et Motorisation au CNAM, TVA EngineeringWe would especially like to congratulate Nicolas Hochard for his diploma in Electrical Power Systems Engineering EPRM – Network Power Electronics and Motorisation, with distinction, on 28 September 2017.

You may already know that this training course is registered with the RNCP, (the French Directory of Professional Certification), and dispensed by the CNAM (the French Conservatory of Arts and Crafts), in partnership with the school “Arts and Crafts ParisTech”. The aim is to “train engineers capable of designing and implementing electric technology for tomorrow, in response to major developments in energy production, transport and consumption, while integrating environmental  and energy efficiency”.

Remember that Nicolas joined TVA Engineering on 22 September 2014 as an apprentice engineer. Despite many upheavals encountered by the firm during this period, Nicolas managed to adapt by absorbing as much of his tutors’ experience as possible and thereby acquiring the level of design studio electrical engineer. We are delighted today to extend our congratulations for his latest promotion to Electrics Engineer on 25 September 2017, after three years’ training. We hope he enjoys a long career with TVA Engineering.

Nicolas is a shining example of smooth integration, demonstrating once again that TVA Engineering has the capacity to train staff in its core lines of business: electricity, instrumentation, controls, automation, general installations and pipe fittings. We hope that this experience will continue to set an example in the near future. Because this is another facet of the “TVA spirit”!
