As can be seen from the above-mentioned programme, the courses announced as such are compulsory for trainee journalists with a view to obtaining the definitive professional journalist’s card. The courses will take place in the Cultural Centre in Colmar-Berg (5, rue de la Poste) and are offered free of charge by the Press Council.

This half-day is a unique opportunity for trainee journalists to attend all the compulsory courses at once and thus meet the requirements for obtaining the definitive press card at the end of the course.

IMPORTANT: For organisational and security reasons, it is essential to register for the courses. Registration is binding. It goes without saying that non-registered candidates are not accepted!

Please register as soon as possible for the course(s) of your choice (by e-mail to secretariat@press.lu).
