In addition, it has a vocation as an educator, a central theme that has been repeated throughout his career, he has been the development of training programs to train and impart his knowledge.

He attended the seminar practical design classes at the university which was focused on the application of modern development methodologies education programs. I lectured to freshmen architecture for a little over a year. A new career opportunity resulted in a change of direction by initiating a long stage in oil exploration. Frequent and extended trips away temporarily forced him to teaching.
His new career in Industrial Safety in Veritas DGC a Canadian company was accompanied by great opportunities and challenges. He received training in USA on HSE Management System of the company – analysis, control and risk mitigation, management and HSE management, hazardous materials management, incident investigation, handling of explosives, among others.
