Young Proffesionals workshop

"This programme was very
valuable to me and my employer
as it enabled us to get a different
perspective on certain problems
we encounter and understand
how other people are dealing
with similar challenges.
We use IEC Standards daily and
it is very important for us to have
an understanding on how IEC
works and to get involved so we
can make the standards work for
us - this workshop will help us in
this process
