We are pleased to announce that everything is in place for our second annual Ceramic Water Filter Training Course.
The course will take place from Saturday, August 17 to Wednesday, August 28, 2019.
The venue will be Adamah Clay Studios in Dodgeville, Wisconsin, USA. We held the course at Adamah last year and found it to be an excellent facility that is also in a beautiful rural location.
Please spread the word to your favourite social media groups and anyone else that you think might be interested.
Potters for Peace, in partnership with educational specialists at the Center for Affordable Water & Sanitation Technology (CAWST), has developed this two-week intensive course which will be an excellent opportunity to learn how to establish a water filter factory from the ground up, improve an existing factory, or prepare to work globally to improve water quality.
The course is designed to
- Train and support existing factory owners
- Attract and guide new ceramic filter factory startups
- Promote collaboration and communication between members of the filter community
- Improve filter quality on a global scale, thus helping to reduce the global burden of diarrheal disease
By the end of the training, participants will be able to demonstrate what is involved in high quality ceramic filter production and explain what is involved in starting and maintaining a successful filter factory.
The course will be offered in English and maximum class size is 12.
Tuition includes all meals during the course, plus lodging and local transportation in Nicaragua. Participants are responsible for their own transportation (airfare) to Nicaragua.
TUITION FEE: $3500US (includes lodging, meals, and local transportation). A limited number of partial scholarships will be available.
