From September the 7th to October the 2nd, the Inland Waterway Transport online course were executed for instructors and members of the SENA sector table. These online courses were focused on the following topics:
• Better understanding of IWT solutions and application as part of multimodal logistics supply chains;
• The ability to better assess and develop inland waterways projects;
• Better understanding of holistic and end-user focused approach to inland waterways projects.
The Dutch experts Harrie de Leijer and Richard van Liere instructed the course participants through 20 thematic modules, combining individual activities and group exercises, where they presented their own initiatives on the current situation of inland waterway transport in Colombia and the perspectives on this matter.
The online course was successfully conducted with simultaneous translation English-Spanish-English.
Finally, a virtual ceremony took place in order to grant 31 international certificates of STC International to the participants. During this event, some of the participants gave their impressions of the course and the importance of this type of training for instructors and apprentices of SENA in Colombia.
