ICRC Water and Habitat training courses for engineers and technical staff - 2024
About the event
These courses will train engineers and technical staff to plan, implement and monitor technical programmes related to Water, Sanitation and Energy, and will help them better understand the organizational context of humanitarian situations. The courses are run jointly by the Water and Habitat Unit of the ICRC and partner universities in the various locations.
Each course consists of 3 phases: a 4–6 week online session to acquire the basics, a 5-6 day face-to-face session to deepen and apply the concepts, and a 2 month assignment period to apply the concepts in a practical case study.
