Haestad Methods announced that more than 150 representatives from dozens of the largest water and wastewater organizations in Latin America will participate in Haestad Methods' open house and accredited training programs November 25-29 in Santiago, Chile.

"Our clients are serious about the protection of their environment and recognize that Haestad Methods' cutting-edge technology and training programs provide the best tools in the industry for managing their water resources and sanitary sewer systems," said Leandro Rodriguez, South America Sales Manager for Haestad Methods.

Participants will earn an A+ Modeler Certificate for each two-day course completed in water distribution and sanitary sewer design and modeling. Independent certification will ensure that participants leverage the latest technologies to deliver the most efficient solutions to their clients. Each two-day training program includes the most recent version of Haestad Methods' WaterCAD or SewerCAD(R) software.
