During 2 full days of training, 8 modules designed logically and well thought out by the team of trainers to include as varied a spectrum as possible but also complete with topics and problems related to the topic addressed, we managed to provide the course participants with information, skills and knowledge necessary for an absolutely specific field such as – WASTE MANAGEMENT:
