State level Training Program for Wastewater Treatment Plant Technicians and Helpers

19-21 June 2018, VIA GIDC Estate, Vatva Ahmedabad

Centre for Environment Education (CEE) and GIZ organised a training programme for the operators and helpers of ETP/CETP to make them aware of the fundamental aspects of operation and maintenance of ETP/CETP. The training would assist them to achieve cost-effective operation, improved performance and abatement of environmental pollution.

The aim of this training is to raise the awareness and develop the skills of helpers and operators of ETPs/CETPs using the knowledge and experience of the resource persons who are experts in this field. It is expected that this would improve their skill and performance leading to enhanced compliance and improved environmental pollution control. It would further help them to understand the aspects of health and safety in a better way.

About sixty participants registered for training. Each participant was provided kits containing technical material for operation and maintenance of ETP/CETP. The entire training was spread over three days. First two days covered the theoretical part and the last day included a practical part in which all the participants were taken to witness the operation of CETP, MEE and spray drier. After evaluation on the final day, participants were provided with certificates for the training. Keeping in view the difficulties of the participants to understand the English language fully, the experts were requested to talk in Gujarati or Hindi languages only.
