Posted: 10/20/2011 Viewed: 32456 times
In November we will be offering several free, online, interactive basic WEAP trainings, to help beginners get started using WEAP. Each training will take place over three days, three hours per day (total of 9 hours in a training).

We have scheduled two trainings so far, with more to follow. One training will be conducted in English (November 1-3), the second in Spanish (November 7-9). Space is limited. Participants that cannot attend these trainings will have an opportunity to participate in other free trainings that we will schedule later in November and in 2012.

To register for a training, go to

For audio, you can either use your computer's microphone and speakers (a headset is recommended), or use the telephone (phone numbers will be available in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom and United States--see http://goo.gl/yHaUr ).

Here are descriptions for the two trainings:

Hi Jack;

Glad initiatives aimed at preparing public. I hope to enter the next training and I've seen the presentation of the software and I find it interesting and useful to apply in the basins of Uraba in Colombia.
