The training was developed in two days of theoretical and practical training, where the students, who study 4º year average, could know different aspects of production and especially the field of tunnel fortification, as a key element of management and safety in the tasks.

With the presence of regional authorities, representatives of the private sector, teachers and students of the establishment, the inauguration ceremony of the course "Tunnel Fortification Workshop" was held for students of the Jorge Alessandri Rodríguez School in La Serena.

The program is the product of a public-private partnership, aimed at strengthening the skills of technicians, as a way to contribute to the growth of the region and the country. That is why, from the initiative of the Mining Seremi, CAP Mining contributed the resources for the execution of the workshop developed in the El Brillador School Mine of the U. de La Serena, an emblematic and unique venue in Latin America, which has been consolidated as a space for training, delivering added value to mining activity in the Coquimbo Region.

On the occasion, the Mining Seremi of the Region of Coquimbo, Yanko Loyola, reaffirmed the line of action proposed by President Michelle Bachelet, aimed at working with people to reduce the inequality gaps.

For his part, Renzo Cermenatti, head of Training and Organizational Development of CAP Mining, referred to the needs that companies have today and highlighted the opportunity it represents for the students of the Liceo Jorge Alessandri Rodríguez, to acquire new tools and skills that contribute to their development and that of their family groups. "I want to thank the possibility of participating in this process that incorporates them into the world of work," said the executive to the 47 students and their specialty teachers. "I hope that these initiatives and these projects that we are generating do not end, since this way we form human capital that contributes to the world and the country, "concluded Cermenatti.
