This program corresponds to an activity of the CISTT Association to train civil, environmental, sanitary and geotechnical engineering professors of Spanish-speaking Latin American universities and SENA teachers in Trenchless technologies so that they, being the experts in teaching, are the ones who train future generations of professionals to go out into society being competitive with any engineer worldwide.


It is recommended but not mandatory, to acquire the text of the course which they will have to use in their classes later.
