  1. Our company wishes to make a presentation to the NAPPS organized education reform summit on the new teaching technique involving the use of computers run on SCADA controlled simulators to make secondary & tertiary graduates acquire skills and be employable. We have been trying to reach the organizers of the event to get accreditation since we hope to have our Spanish partners and developers of the technology that has been successfully used in their country for powering their own 6-3-3-4 system, to address the gathering. We request you to assist us in passing our message to them or send us a reply on how to contact them.
