Emergency WASH courses
RedR UK used to do a series of emergency WASH short courses in the summer. I saw one in Switzerland with the IFRC, RedR still does some training (but in a different format) and there is a group/company that runs one in Madagasar. What else is out there?
In France, BioForce (http://www.bioforce.asso.fr/) runs a lot of humanitarian courses, both long and short, and includes a WASH short course (http://www.bioforce.asso.fr/spip.php?... bottom of the page) as well as degrees.
There is also Groupe URD who looks at links between relief and development, and has a course on Water and ecosan in crises (http://www.urd.org/Course-Water-and-E...)
In Germany, the GTO offers a few courses including one on 'Sustainable Sanitation in Emergencies and Reconstruction Situations' see http://www.germantoilet.org/en/projec...
Maybe have a look at http://forum.susana.org/forum/categor...
RedR continues to run a variety of WASH courses in a variety of formats. We have just run a 'WASH in Emergencies' course in Brussels, 'WASH Essentials in Emergencies' is scheduled for November and 'Urban WASH in Emergencies' is scheduled for February. Take a look at the RedR website for full details: http://redr.org.uk/en/Training-and-mo...
Hi there! Not sure if this is still of use to you, but we published an article related to this last year: "Landscape of WASH-relevant Training for Humanitarian Emergencies".
Hope this helps.
