There were four weeks of classes, with three days dedicated to clarifying doubts, participating in groups, and interacting between participants. All content was made available digitally.

In addition, the workshop helped broaden the vision of airfield organization, AVSEC functions, interaction between everyone, group work, standardization and quality with continuous improvement.
