Diagnostic téléphonique du niveau de connaissances du domaine entretien usure XX et XXX

English translation:wear and tear
Explanation:
You know, when your trainers are down-at-heel ...

Seriously folks ... I don't know what this training is on, but "entretien usure" looks as if it might concern wear (e.g. of machines) and the necessary servicing/maintenance.

Knowing that XX and XXX are not the strengths of the local brew might help.
