Proposals for these training modules are examined by the MPS executive board, and selected on the basis of the audience targeted, proposed topic, costs, date of the event, etc. Proposals have to be submitted at least a year in advance to the MPS executive board.

In parallel, the CUSO also offers "Generic Skills" workshops in management, communication, professional planning, etc...
