Training Program


In brief

The WEC has successfully developed short-courses and implemented trainings since its establishment in 1999. Yemen’s water sector organizations have identified several short course topics with regard to both knowledge and skill development, and over the years the WEC has successfully been able to respond to this demand. For the short-courses the WEC draws upon the highly skilled staff of the WEC as well as its affiliated staff within Sana’a University. WEC constantly reflects on the content of offered courses and the needs in the water sector.
The WEC also has a complete array of education and research facilities available on its premises to support the short-courses including laboratory facilities (field equipment), fully equipped computer rooms with RS/ GIS software, an extensive library and several lecture rooms.

 

Short Training Courses

WEC offers a selection of short-courses for Yemen’s water sector organizations including both knowledge and skill development. Short-courses are meant for practitioners and professionals working at public (governmental/ and non-governmental) and private organisations in the fields of water and water resources, sanitation, and environmental management. The courses are demand driven, and practice oriented. The WEC can draw on a long list of courses that have been given in the past and is capable of tailoring training to the specific needs and requirement of individuals or organisations. Underneath are listed the current short-courses available at the WEC. A full list of all the short-courses given is also available.
