Burkina Faso - Water and Sanitation Program: Support to "CEMEAU"(Water Training Center)

In 2009, the German Cooperation Agency (GTZ) entrusted IOWater with a Feasibility Study on the transformation of the former PTC (Professional Training Center) into a Water Training Center (CEMEAU), with a vision to open but also to expand its training offer to different audiences concerned by the sector Reform. The “CEMEAU” was established in March 2010. The German Cooperation-SEG Water and Sanitation Program (WSP-GIZ), now in its third stage (2013 - 2015), includes a strong “Professional Skills Development” component. In the major actions implemented in 2013, we should mention the building of new equipment and teaching facilities (indoor workshops, outdoor training platforms), that have been made possible by significant financial support from Danish Cooperation (DANIDA). These equipments and training materials, necessary for the completion of directly operational training courses, rely on the recognized know-how of OIWater ’s National Water Training Center (NWTC).
