Course Directors for the Tunneling Short Course
Timothy Coss, president of Microtunneling Inc., started the Microtunneling Short Course in 1994 at a time when microtunneling was still gaining acceptance in the utility construction industry. A former contractor, Coss recognized the need for an educational venue to help owners, contractors and engineers better understand the emerging technology. Since its founding, the Microtunneling Short Course has become the premier event for the microtunneling community worldwide, offering first-class educational and networking opportunities.
