This course has been developed to fill the skills-gap required in high-quality borehole construction. The course is aimed at creating and fostering the required skills in borehole construction, at the same time creating a pool of skilled professionals in rural water supply and sanitation sector particularly at local authority level where this skill lacks considerably.
This course, therefore, responds to the need to guarantee quality, reliable and durable boreholes constructed for the rural communities. This is particularly important because majority of the boreholes stop functioning within a very short period of time after construction mainly due to poor workmanship. The poor workmanship is abated by the absence of skilled professionals to supervise the drilling, construction and equipping of the boreholes.
