Since 1993 IADC has, often in co-operation with local technical universities, provided a week-long seminar especially developed for professionals in dredging-related industries. These intensive courses have been successfully presented in Delft, Singapore, Dubai, Buenos Aires, Abu Dhabi, Bahrain and Mexico.
For (future) decision makers and their advisors in governments, port and harbour authorities, off-shore companies and other organisations that have to execute dredging projects, the International Association of Dredging Companies organises the International Seminar on Dredging and Reclamation.
To optimise the chances of the successful completion of a project, contracting parties should, from the start, fully understand the requirements of a dredging project. This five-day course strives to provide an understanding through lectures by experts in the field and workshops, partly conducted on-site in order to give the “students” hands-on experience.
