Specialization Course in

Inspection and Diagnosis, Rehabilitation and Reinforcement of Buildings

Latest news

This edition of the Specialization Course in Inspection, Diagnosis, Rehabilitation and Reinforcement of Buildings is taught online , but the visits and the experimental class will be in person .

This course is a partnership between IASA and CEEC / ISEL

 

IASA and CEEC / ISEL develop joint theoretical and practical training in order to provide engineering and architecture professionals with the skills necessary to perform their duties, regardless of their previous academic background and which is usually very varied.

MAIN FINDINGS OF THE DEBATES

 

This course is taught by highly qualified specialists with great business experience and aims to contribute to the training of qualified technicians in the field of inspection and diagnosis, rehabilitation and reinforcement of buildings, complementing their training and contributing to the quality of the respective interventions.

We are a family owned and operated business.

It is also intended that the trainees acquire new knowledge in the field of design and work, that they develop skills that allow them to identify and diagnose the pathology, develop techniques for rehabilitation and reinforcement of buildings; in its non-structural and structural components.

We are a family owned and operated business.

The development of this course fits in with the objectives and mission of both promoters.
