IrriMaker was fortunate to give training to 3 companies in Holambra, Brazil from January 14th – 18th.
We arrived in Sau Paulo on Friday and made our way to Holambra. Since Model Maker, IrriMaker originated in South Africa, we were pleasantly surprised by the Dutch influence in Holambra. We felt quite at home and excited to give 5 days of training.
We took along with us training manuals to make the user experience more hands on, in depth and also leave everyone with the important points of material that we covered.
Monday morning we were greeted by 2 representatives of Senninger Brazil, 2 representatives of SYSTEMGOTAS IRRIGAÇÃO, 6 representatives of Irrigaplan and 2 representatives of Irrigabras.
Claudio Tomazela served as a wonderful translator of the training into Portugese. After getting IrriMaker up and running on everyones machines we introduced the group to the basics of the program, its origin and principles.
Over the course of the days we covered everything from placing nodes (fittings, valves, sprinklers, pumps), importing DWG from Autocad to building realistic models from Google Earth.
Along the way we discovered Caipirinha and drinking strong coffee from small cups.
We would like to thank everyone that made this week possible and we look forward to working closely along with each one of you. All the best and see you soon.
