Announcing the launch of the new ECB Project’s WASH e-learning courses Technical Project Management (TPM) in WASH emergencies is about planning, resourcing, and implementing a technical WASH engineering project. This course introduces and familiarises staff with standard project management stages and tools in a creative, practical and innovative way. It covers areas such as logistics processes, risk management and quality control. Information, Education and Communication (IEC) in WASH emergencies examines health and hygiene promotion to strengthen WASH programme design and implementation. It helps the learner practise critical reflection throughout a simulated project, with reference to the context they are working in, the population affected by the crisis and the decisions to be made. Both courses place the learner into a simulated emergency context and require them to complete various tasks in an interactive way. Learners are given realistic challenges and problems to solve, testing their planning and decision-making skills. Who are they for? These courses were designed for country-based WASH teams. The TPM course is intended for field engineering staff working on technical WASH programmes, and the IEC course for health and hygiene promotion field staff who are involved in IEC interventions and who contribute to WASH programme design and implementation. Programme managers would also benefit from them. How can I access them? You will find the courses on the CARE Academy e-learning platform (www.careacademy.org), which is open to all CARE staff and partners, or contact [email protected] to request a free course CD. At present the courses are only available in English.
