The Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA) met with the Waste Management Association of Australia (WMAA) last week in their national office to offer guidance on setting up an online training program. SWANA staff shared details of their online programs as well as insights gained by starting a growing a successful online program with the international association.
WMAA is currently investigating electronic training to address the challenges associated with the high cost of travel in a country as large as Australia. Conversations with industry associates in Europe directed WMAA to visit SWANA.
