– Decipher how emotions and stress are managed.
– Master TOPs (Potential optimization techniques used by the French Air Force).
– Be able to manage a crisis situation in the course of your duties.
– Maintain stability during a conflict situation.
– Master breathing techniques to better manage stress.

Mobilized skills
– C1. Identify mechanisms for managing emotions and stress, by analyzing the functioning of the nervous system and defining the phases of stress, in order to better anticipate its effects.
– C2. Identify the right stress zone, using complex physiological and mental mechanisms to optimize performance.
– C3. Identify risks by analyzing different anxiety-provoking situations and identifying warning signals in order to anticipate a crisis situation.
– C4. Regulate a conflict situation by adopting a positive approach to the crisis in order to limit psychosocial risks / establish a climate conducive to work / promote well-being at work.
– C5. Apply OPT techniques (Optimizing Potential Techniques), using breathing, visualization, dynamic relaxation and internal dialogue to adopt the right approach to a stressful situation.
– C6. Manage a crisis situation while on the job, using TOP techniques (relaxation breathing, visualization, internal dialogue) to calm an anxiety-provoking situation.

Evaluation methods
– Trainee positioning at the start of the course.
– Trainee assessment using the following methods: On-the-spot assessment, quizzes and role-plays.
– Follow-up and support for trainees throughout the course, using the following methods: quizzes and MCQs.

Methods employed
– Knowledge transfer: Videos, comprehensive training aids.
– Co-construction between participants: group discussions, case studies, individual quizzes.
– Immersion: trainee situations, observations and debriefings, optimization of actions, corrective action, demonstration.


MODULE 1 : Physiology

  • Understanding the mechanism of emotions and stress.
  • Functioning of sensory receptors.
  • Functioning of the autonomic nervous system.
  • Functioning of cardiac activity and links with stress and emotions.
  • Role of the neurotransmitters adrenalin and noradrenalin.
  • Physiological mechanisms: alarm, resistance and exhaustion.
  • How to recognize stress and how to manage it.


Practice :

  • MCQs
  • Videos and thermographic camera examples.

MODULE 2 : Breathing and relaxation

  • Understanding the respiratory mechanism.
  • Links between the heart and breathing, understanding an ECG (electrocardiogram).
  • Understand how to influence these 2 parameters through cardiac coherence.


  • MORNING : Safety and environmental aspects– MODULE 3 : Piloting basics                        
    • Mechanical principles (speed, acceleration, braking, centripetal force, trajectories).
    • Application of mechanical principles to driving.
    • Presentation of internal combustion and ethanol vehicles, followed by electric vehicles.


    Practice :

    • Simulator application.
    • Comparison and testing : electric, thermal, biofuels.


    – MODULE 4 : Breathing and relaxation – application

    • Stimulation exercises with monitoring.
    • Regulation strategies to automate processes.
    • Seeking participant’s reflex autonomy.


    – MODULE 5 : In-vehicle application

    • Definition of circuit layout, tests.
    • Practical workshops on braking and trajectories.


    Practice :

    • Practice the basics of driving on a test track.



    AFTERNOON : Application of stress management

    – MODULE 6 : Reflex training

    • Work on relaxation./li>
    • Work on reflexes with assistance tools.
    • Understand how to influence these 2 parameters using cardiac coherence.


    Practice :

    • Timed exercises on correct movements with the simulator.
    • Seeking participants’ reflex autonomy.



    – MODULE 7 : Field application with vehicles

    • Faced with an anxiety-provoking situation generated by one or more individuals, implement the right strategy to maintain stress at the level that optimizes performance.

    At the level reached, strategies and methods for regulating and maintaining stress.
    The aim is to mobilize the participant’s affect.

    • When faced with an anxiety-provoking situation involving objects, vehicles, or organizations, implement the right strategy to keep stress at the level required to optimize performance.

    At the level reached, strategies and methods for regulating and maintaining stress.

    This workshop is designed to mobilize the participant’s behavioral responses.


    Practice :

    • Sliding workshop
    • Timed slalom workshop
    • Quick test workshop
    • Participant monitoring and real-time physiological analysis on biofuel or electric racing vehicles


MODULE 8 : Validation of prior learning                             

  • MCQs on all concepts covered in the course
  • Video debriefings
  • Validation and appropriation of the emotional management process
  • Action plan

DAY 4 : Understanding the influence of your behavior

  • Understanding and identifying influencing factors
  • How to use what has been observed
  • Links between autonomy, self-confidence and emotional awareness.


Practice :

  • Peril games to enable trainees to step out of their comfort zone and broaden their scope of action and possibilities.
  • Help participants grow in their understanding of others and their flexibility in adapting to generate a positive first contact and lay the foundations for trust.
