ITA-CET Education & training in the tunnelling industry

The ITA-CET is launching a series of lectures on Tuesday 9th March at 13 :00-14 :30 CET TIME

In these times of uncertainty, ITA-CET, the ITA committee dedicated to education and training, had to reinvent a way of sharing knowledge, best practices and case studies.
In 2021, ITA through its Committee on education and training together with ITA-CET Foundation launches a new monthly rendez-vous which will take place every 2nd Tuesday at 1 PM CET time. This new series of short online courses will be dedicated to specific topics exploring current issues and cutting-edge technologies used in tunnelling industry.

A NEW SERIES OF ONLINE COURSES

The speakers will give short lectures online and accessible to all. The aim is to keep the ecosystem abreast of new ideas and technologies, and to provide training on important subjects. These events also aim to gather top professionals from the ITA’s Working Groups and Committees, as well as industry representatives and project owners.
