Concept Alpha
de Rouyn-Noranda
Our mission is to offer to our clientele a personalized and individual training for their reading, writing, conversation, numeracy or computer skills

Brief history

Corporation Concept Alpha of Rouyn-Noranda was founded in January 2001. It was born from the need to help people who want to improve their their French skills (reading, writing, communication) or numeracy skills.

With a desire to take these people out of their isolation by becoming familiar with the words, Concept Alpha became a place of training and support for adults 16 years old and over, and this, through a personalized path and in a context less institutional.
