Technical Training in Water and Sanitation Infrastructure / 12-17 September 2016 / Madagascar
The training is a broad, intense 6-day course with a heavy practical bias, providing a rare opportunity to learn through both theoretical and hands-on practical sessions. The training is invaluable to both those who need more technical input for their work, as well as for those in management who find they have become more and more involved in water and/or sanitation programmes, but lack the basic technical and theoretical background.
The training is intense and is given through a range of practical and theoretical sessions. While several theoretical courses are available, practical hands-on field experience is difficult to obtain. The BushProof training therefore focuses heavily on practical which include the following:
Water well design, including sizing of screen and gravel pack
Manual drilling using BushProof technique
Field surveying and measurement to set up a gravity flow water supply & a pumping system
Chlorine & alum jar tests
Biosand filter construction
Latrine dome slab construction
Water testing (chemical, physical, bacteriological)
In addition to the practical sessions, the course will provide a broad overview of the theoretical aspects of water supply & treatment projects. Theoretical issues are linked to real life field experiences of the facilitators throughout the course.
Cost : 1,800 Euros, which includes tuition, handouts, resource USB, coffee breaks, lunch on training days and field visits. Any organization booking 5 places can get a 6th place for free. Places are only guaranteed upon full payment.
