The trainers of the ToTs on board for the first training courses

The trainers who are trained at GIZ-VWSA ToT courses delivered the first two training courses on Operation and Maintenance of Centralized Wastewater Treatment Plants and Demand-based Planning of Operation and Maintenance for Wastewater Utilities in Vietnam from 20-22 June and 23-25 June, 2016 respectively. The training courses were jointly organized by the Vietnam Water Supply and Sewerage Association and GIZ in Ho Chi Minh City as part of the Wastewater Management Programme.

Trainees at the courses 

Each training course attracted the participation of about 30 technical and planning staff from wastewater operators in Southern Vietnam who directly engage in planning, operation and maintenance of drainage, sewerage and wastewater treatment systems. They benefited greatly from leaners-centered methodology, demand-responsive and tailed training programme, well-prepared training materials and interactive and practical training sessions. The two training courses were designed to address three angles of trainee&;s competence: knowledge, skills and attitude through presentations on basic knowledge and theory combined with team work, group discussions, and practical site visit. The trainers did a good job from preparation in designing programme and materials, to teaching and facilitating at the training courses as well as reviewing to ensure results. They have mobilized the knowledge and skills from the previous ToT courses plus their own practical experiences as strong practitioners in these two courses.

Groupwork and group presentations 

All the trainees were granted with the Certificate of Attendance that will help them with further development in their day-to-day work and career.

Certificate presenting session 

The training courses have been appreciated by all trainees, illustrated good success, high efficiency and synergy of the approach pursued by GIZ to sustainable capacity building programme for wastewater sector in Vietnam.

The two training courses are the first in a series of training courses conducted by VWSA and GIZ in and beyond 2016 aiming at capacity development for wastewater sector of Vietnam and addressing the gap in human resources and improving performance of the wastewater operators of Vietnam.

The next training course on Operation and Maintenance of Drainage and Sewerage Network is planned on July in Binh Duong.
