About the Programme
The Construction, Engineering and Public Works Inspection Programme that is aimed at improving inspectors’ skills, techniques, reporting and data collection systems using latest technologies. This programme aims to address inspection issues in public works despite the unavailability of work tools, low morale, budget constraints, long supply chain management processes and a lack of skilled personnel.
The objective of the programme is to provide crucial information needed by inspectors to carry out their duties skillfully. Milla SA welcomes you to this programme for beginners as well as professionals who want to get the latest developments in public works inspection. For the past 5 years, Milla SA has successfully hosted hundreds of public works inspectors across the country. We are taking public works inspection to the highest level this year by bringing you the latest developments in line with international standards.
