The training consisted of theoretical and practical work that was implemented in Terme Topusko and on the training ground “Cerovac” near Karlovac in Croatia. Candidates who participated in the training sessions passed the final exam and consequently obtained a certificate authorizing them to engage in the implementation of demining operations also in the territory of Serbia and Croatia. Their task will be to implement demining operations (ERW clearance) along the South Stream pipeline project that will pass through Bulgaria, Serbia and Croatia.
