Short Term Courses

The function of the department is mainly to carry surveillance on sector dynamics, conduct training needs, develop and implement short tailor made courses for skills upgrading, problem solving, and refresher in the water and related sectors. The tailor made courses are to suit the training needs and interventions desired for organizational growth in accordance with strategic plans and business environment.
