In 2004, Sarens replaced the initial by a second training centre "Comokra" in Steenhuffel, Belgium in close cooperation with VZW Montage and VDAB.
Different courses can be followed throughout the year (e.g. crane operators, riggers, forklift operators, and others), both for unemployed people as well as for employees. The Comokra training centre has several mobile cranes, telehandlers, telescopic work platforms, and other equipment and material available.
