The CIHEAM (International Center for Advanced Mediterranean Agronomic Studies) and ICONA have organized this second course of three weeks in May-June 1990. The first two weeks of the course were held in the Mediterranean Agronomical Institute of Saragossa.
The third week was devoted to field exercises including the operation of equipment, ground tankers, radio communications and a helicopter. Training in the use of prescribed fire was preceded by the opening of firelines by the participants.
A total of 25 foresters from Algeria, Morocco, Portugal, Tunisia, Uruguay and Yugoslavia with several Spaniards followed the lessons and exercises.
