The course has also been successfully delivered 'on location' to the Oxfam team at Cox's Bazaar, Bangladesh.
WASH for Logistics – A Technical Training Course
Logistics staff are asked to procure and deliver WASH equipment by programme field teams. Too often they are not provided with sufficient technical information resulting in questions being asked by suppliers which need to be relayed back to the field engineer.
Too frequently time is lost and delays occur because engineers do not provide the correct or sufficient information when initiating a procurement.
This course is an introduction to WASH basics. It is a technical course, for those with no technical experience, and it aims to provide logistics, procurement or programme management staff with enough knowledge to be able to question the programme delivery team over WASH planning and supply requests.
The course will be held at the Oxfam Supply Centre warehouse in Bicester, UK. It will be a mix of informal ‘classroom’ sessions and hands-on practical demonstrations of various equipment items.
The course is run over two days and is open to a maximum of 8 participants. It will cover:
- Water testing
- Water treatment
- Water pumping and groundwater abstraction
- Water storage
- Water distribution systems
