What are the competencies and knowledge needed by teachers and trainers in order to use efficiently the new technologies of information? This paper aims at giving some answers to this question and describes a distance training action which enables to acquire the desired topics. The theoretical knowledge which is needed is first briefly described. Another essential characteristic of this action, the acquisition of the true capacity to realise a real project is then discussed. The second part of the talk is related to the design of a modular, open, accessible from a distance, training action which uses both specific multimedia training supports and conduct patterns based on the telecommunication numerical networks. The design of the multimedia supports specifically developed for this action is also commented.
