Objective and content of the internship

The SPI was set up so that artisans have a minimum of information on the conditions for operating and managing a business : from the creation of the activity to its daily management, via funding. In 30 hours, this training must allow an artisan to know the main obligations and formalities to be fulfilled. The SPI must avoid craftsmen from being sanctioned for forgotten formalities or legal obligations.

Where and how to follow this internship?

The competent body to allow you to carry out this internship is your chamber of trades and crafts. To be registered as a craftsman, you will need to justify skills delivered by this internship. As such, the CMA is required to offer you an internship session within 30 days of your registration request. If the CMA does not meet this deadline, it will have to register your company in the trade directory.

The internship is chargeable. In 2017, it was invoiced at 194 euros, which could be paid for by the training council of the regional chamber of trades and crafts (CRMA).

To benefit from the exemption, you must provide a certificate: certificate of education or training, diploma… It is advisable to consult your CMA to check that you can be exempted from following the SPI.

In addition, some CMAs propose to follow the online SPI internship. It is a good solution to save time if you already have notions of Business Management, but must still follow the course. An information meeting is compulsory before starting the internship. After the online training, a day is also necessary in your CMA to validate the internship and obtain the certificate.
