Dive in with the aquaculturists from the Continuing Education Department of the University of Montpellier (SFC-UM)

Je filme ma formation is an annual educational video competition that enables students to present their training by making a video. This year, Cécile, Amélie, Gyress, Lucas, Pierre and Gérald, all aquaculture students in the continuing education program, took up the challenge. This young, highly responsive, serious and committed team succeeded (in a very short space of time, in parallel with their courses and exams) in producing a high-quality, instructive and entertaining video. They would get out the phone between classes to film a sequence. In just one week, the shoot was complete! Then it was time to edit and rework the sequences in the evenings and at weekends. To finalize their video, they recorded the voice-over in the University of Montpellier's recording studio.

Based at the Sète marine station, the continuing education department has over 40 years' experience in professional training in aquaculture, aquariology, aquaponics, halieutics, environmental enhancement and freediving. Each year, our professional instructors train around forty people. With a professional integration rate in excess of 80%, our training courses are true vectors of success. The main aim is to help young people, as well as working people looking for a career change, to gain a better understanding of the aquaculture professions. To present a sector of activity, a profession, through the eyes of those who are currently learning.
