As an employee of the TRACTEBEL Group, you have a general right to access the Platform and a specific right to access the Training Modules assigned to you initially and/or over time.


Your access rights may be limited in time, for example, when you have been given a specified period within which to complete a particular training course. It is your responsibility to complete the training courses within that time frame.


These access rights are strictly personal. Consequently, you may not provide access to the Platform or your Training Modules to any third parties, including other TRACTEBEL Group employees. You also agree not to provide any third party with the means of authentication (login/password) assigned to you to access the Platform and/or the Training Modules.




You can access the Platform at any time from your workstation. For technical reasons, we recommend that you connect to the Platform by cable connection only, and not via Wi-Fi.
