Mr. Vraxnos has also participated on behalf of the Ministry of Infrastructure, Transport and Networks.

Both the lectures and all the educational material in the electronic platform in general will be filmed and will be available to the trainees. There will be accesses (usernames & passwords) to all participants as well as an open forum which will run through this platform where participants will have the opportunity to make questions that will be answered by the speakers. Also, the instructors will be available for personalized meetings in order to answer questions at a time arranged directly with them.
