IACDS hosts its first webinar

IACDS has always been committed to the education of professionals related to the concrete sawing and drilling industry. For this reason, we develop a series of activities and actions in order to expand the knowledge and experience related to the sector.

Now, with the current situation, we have adapted our actions to online format, so that we do not stop learning and sharing experiences in such an important time as this.

That’s why we start 2021 with our first educational webinar. But what is exactly a webinar? In a nutshell, it’s a short (about one hour) educational session, hosted online and broadcast live. Using a specific platform, webinar participants canwatch the presentation and follow the speaker’s explanations, as well as interact through a chat and ask their own questions.
