Technical Training in Water Infrastructure / 13 - 18 March 2017 / Madagascar
The BushProof Technical Training in Water Infrastructure 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 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 elsewhere, practical, hands-on field experience is difficult to obtain. The BushProof training therefore focuses heavily on these sessions, which include the following:
• Manual drilling;
• Coagulation & chlorination jar tests;
• Biosand filter construction;
• Water testing (physio-chem, bacteriological);
• Field topographical surveying;
• Various practical calculations as part of theoretical sessions, including well design, pipe design (pumping & gravity) and rainwater catchment.
Participants are expected to get involved with all practical sessions – prepare to get dirty!
In addition to the practical sessions, the course will provide a broad overview of the theoretical aspects of water infrastructure. Theoretical issues are linked to real life field experiences of the facilitators throughout the course.
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.
