Located in the towns of Folgoso de la Ribera and Torre del Bierzo, in the Bierzo Leones, just 20 Km from Ponferrada. Its facilities cover an area of 54 hectares and have all the equipment and training infrastructure and a team of qualified teachers in different branches of engineering and instructors with extensive professional experience to ensure quality and updated technical training.

The facilities are divided into four distinct areas:

  • Underground construction Area
  • Earthmoving Area
  • Electromechanical and renewable energy Area
  • Environmental Area
This area has a practice area of 12 hectares formed by an open pit and various concourses and practices pits sky.
The machinery of the area comprising rigid and articulated dumpers, graders, bulldozers, backhoes, mixed, etc. Also, thanks to an agreement with the company Leica Geosystems has automatic guidance systems in its excavation and earthmoving machinery.

Additionally the area has a simulation center, a pioneer in Spain, with different civil and mining machinery (dump truck, motorgrader, loader and backhoe).
This area's facilities include two parallel tunnels 50 square meters section and a current length of 450 meters, which will run until the 676. Also it has a mine for practices with more than 5 kilometers of galleries, a plant of concrete and a concrete quality control laboratoryfor teaching and work control.
Among its machinery has other machinery for tunneling by drill and blast (jumbos, shotcreting robots, low profile blades, etc.) and different sized miners.
Additionally the area has a simulation center equipped with specific simulators and shotcreting machine jumbo robot.
This area has a practical workshop and electromechanical equipment verification and two garages to provide complete and updated job training. As singular element there is also a bank of electrical and thermal engines tests for verifying the same engines.
Also the area has a welding shop and boiler equipped with 21 single cabins and other general equipment.
The renewable energies part counts with solar thermal facilities, photovoltaic, wind and biomass as well as a terrace practices that can run different types of assemblies and check their performance.
This area counts among its facilities with two fully automated greenhouses and two bowers to train students in the production of native and foreign plant.
Likewise, the area has a different experimental vineyard and farmland.
Additionally it has 40 hectares of forestland in various species, mainly pine, black oak, oak and chestnut, and different areas of reforestation and restoration in which train students in these techniques.
Machinery, the area includes different types of tractors and implements and tools for silvicultural treatments (chainsaws, mowers, trimmers, sprayers, etc).

Located in Caboalles de Arriba, in the town of Villablino.
This school has an underground coal mine as driving for students. It also has additional facilities, always designed so that students can carry out practical work in a real scenario. These facilities are:

  • Processing center and machine room
  • Welding and electro workshop
  • Stonework workshop
  • Concrete manufacturing plan

Currently this center has paralyzed their activity.
