Of the FactoMineR output, which gives the individual factor scores?

I would like to identify individual factor scores in the FactoMineR output so that I can use them in further analyses, e.g. regression models. In an article I am reading on PCA it states, "Each individual has a factor score for every derived pattern (factor) and this score is a continuous variable." 

In the case of using FactoMineR, is this referring to the individual coordinates, as found with res$ind$coord?

Thank you!

Yes your right, you can use res$ind$coord as a factor score to perform regression.
The definition of the scores, as it is defined in PCA, is available in res$svd$U   (the results are similar to those in res$ind$coord except that each column is standardized to 1)
